It doesn’t take much to level up your bathroom – just incorporate bright, lush plants and enjoy the spa-like experience that adding greenery can create.
The best plants for the bathroom are plants that like higher humidity and can tolerate lower lighting conditions. Read more to learn how to transform your bathroom with plants.
TIP 1: Hang it up
If your bathroom is like most, it doesn’t have a ton of extra space to place plants. Utilize shelving and plant hangers if your floor and counter space is at a premium. Trailing plants like the Spider Plant and Philodendron Brasil love to hang or be positioned on a shelf so new growth can cascade and vine freely. Take advantage of overlooked surfaces like behind the toilet or over a vanity if you’re low on shelf space.
TIP 2: Compact plants save on space
If you don’t have space for a statement plant like a Monstera or Fiddle Leaf Fig in your bathroom, a smaller, more compact plant can have just as big an impact. The Hedgehog Aloe, Ponytail Palm, and Neon Prayer Plant are all great options.
TIP 3: Choose humidity-loving plants and plants that will adapt to lower light
Your bathroom is the most humid room in your home. Choose plants that will thrive in the extra moisture, such as the Bird’s Nest Fern and Kimberly Queen Fern. While it’s the most humid, it’s also often the least bright. If your bathroom is on the darker side, choose a light adaptable plant, such as the Parlor Palm.
TIP 4: Don’t be modest
Don’t be afraid to place plants in the shower! They’ll love the steam and moisture boost and the gentle rain will clean their leaves from dust and debris.
