You might think bathrooms aren’t the ideal environment for plants because of the high humidity, warm temperatures and low light. But that’s exactly what most tropical plants are missing! So if you are loving the Urban Jungle-trend, take a look at these 4 plants for your bathroom:
The dragon plant, or Draceana plant, needs very little care to do well. It prefers light shade and a level of humidity that’s generally not found in most rooms. Therefore, placing it in the bathroom is ideal! The lighting and humidity will prevent brown leaf tip and keep its greenery bright and flawless.
Because orchids are epiphytes, they thrive in the humidity. That’s why they’re a perfect choice for your bathroom! Some orchids prefer moderate light, others need bright light. So if you don’t have any window in your bathroom, occasionally put them in indirect sunlight. This way they can bloom for weeks!

The Peace Lily, or botanically Spathiphyllum, filters out chemicals in the environment and thus provides your bathroom with clean air. The plant likes indirect sunlight or artificial light, and needs a lot of water. This makes it a perfect plant for the bathroom. It comes in many sizes, so whether you have a large or small bathroom: there will always be a suitable size!
The Snake Plant, also known as mother-in-law’s tongue, is almost impossible to kill. The plant requires little to no water, and if you keep it in a humid bathroom, you might never have to water it at all! It tolerates almost any growing condition, from nearly no light to bright or direct light.
