Right Plant Right Place: Plants perfect for a bathroom

Why not add a splash of green to your bathroom? Many plants will be very happy, benefiting from the high levels of humidity created by the steam from a bath or shower. If you are short of space to place a pot, try hanging a trailing plant from the ceiling.

Plants we recommend for a bathroom:

Aloe vera
A fabulous plant that makes a brilliant focal point, they also contain a healing sap.

Asplenium (Birds Nest Fern)
An easy to care for fern, prefers to
dry slightly between watering

Calathea
Loves the humidity and mist from the shower,
and will do well in a well-lit spot away
from direct sunlight

Chamaedorea (Parlour Palm)
Easy to care for, great for larger bathrooms
and will grow into a great specimen plant

Chlorophytum (Spider Plant)
Wonderful hanging plant for bathrooms, plant up small plantlets and create more plants for free

Indoor Ferns
There are lots of mixed varieties of indoor ferns
that will flourish in bathroom conditions

Philodendron
The trailing Pothos would look fantastic
trailing down from your bathroom shelves

Spathiphyllum (Peace Lily)
Thrives in a spot with lower light levels
and enjoys being kept damp, will enjoy the
humidity in the bathroom
