UNDERSTANDING THE BATHROOM ENVIRONMENT
The bathroom is undoubtedly the most humid room in the house and many bathrooms are short on natural light. When someone takes a long, hot shower, for example, the conditions simulate the moisture and heat of a tropical rainforest. This is an environment that certain plants will love. Unfortunately, that doesn’t include succulents and cacti.
ALL PLANTS NEED LIGHT, EVEN IN THE BATHROOM
If your bathroom doesn’t have a window it will be hard to maintain any plant there on the long-term, unless you use grow lights.
Plants That Love the Rainforest
When you’re shopping for bathroom plants, you should focus on types that flourish in tropical settings. From rainforest flowers such as orchids to steam-absorbing greenery such as philodendrons, there are a lot of beautiful possibilities. Light conditions also figure into the equation. If your bath is low on natural light, you might want to choose a Chinese evergreen, which likes low to medium light levels and enjoys warm, humid spaces, or colorful begonias, which thrive in fluorescent light. English ivy is another low-light possibility — and it also will help purify the air in your bathroom.
