Keep These Houseplants Happy In Your Bathroom

Your bathroom is a great spot for a happy houseplant. We love plants for a variety of reasons, but bringing plants into your bathroom is very beneficial for your overall wellbeing. If you’re worried about humidity from the shower or lack of sunlight, don’t. These houseplants will thrive in your bathroom and look great in the process.

Orchids actually love humidity, which make them ideal bathroom plants. Try an easier-to-manage variety like phalaenopsis and paphiopedilums, which will all do well with bright, filtered bathroom window light.

Ferns, especially varieties such as Bird’s Nest Ferns are great bathroom plants. They love the humidity and will also tolerate low light, although they do slightly prefer a medium/bright indirect light location.
