Our apartment community suggests that you use indoor plants to brighten up your home and give the floor plan a refreshing, unique feel. What we’re saying is plants offer up a perfect, budget-friendly way to liven up your apartment, while also cleansing the air supply in your space and boosting your overall mood.
But, if you’re looking to beautify your bathroom with some greenery, it can be tricky since high humidity levels and low light can stunt the growth of many plant types. Luckily, these four species of common houseplants thrive in these conditions, making them ideal picks for your bathroom. Check out the picks below.
They’re a classic for a reason! Spider plants are always in style, which is great news if you’re looking for a bathroom plant that will withstand trends. Spider plants are easy to grow and adapt to low light levels. For best results, keep them slightly moist during spring to summer, and a little drier in winter.
If you’re looking for a delicate, lacy look, turn to Maidenhair Ferns. These plants love high humidity, making them perfect for situating next to your shower. Bright, indirect light, and constant moisture are your best bets if you want to keep the Maidenhair Fern in tip-top shape.
Boston Ferns are typically high-maintenance – unless you place them in your bathroom. That’s because this type of fern thrives in humidity. Because they also require a lot of light, they’ll do well near a bathroom window. Keep a broom handy, too – they drop leaves often, so you will want to pick them up, as needed.
Lilies add a timeless touch to just about every room. So, why not inject some classic style into your bathroom with a Peace Lily? They’re low-maintenance, and despite seeking out moderate to bright light, peace lilies adapt well to low light levels.
