Right Plant Right Place: Plants perfect for a bathroom

Bathrooms will benefit from air purifying houseplants to help minimise the chemicals used when cleaning. Certain houseplants will also benefit from having a permanent home in the bathroom, well lit, in direct sunlight and plenty of steam to help keep up the humidity.

Plants we recommend for a bathroom:

Aloe vera
A fabulous plant with great air purifying
properties for the bathroom

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
which will also help clean the air. Plant up the
small plantlets to 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
