Bathroom Plants That Thrive 

Nothing brings fresh life into a bathroom like real plants. However, the wide range of humidity and limited natural light of the typical bathroom aren’t conducive to all kinds of greenery. Pick the wrong plants, and they’ll be unable to live in that environment. When you’re looking for the right bathroom plant, you need the kind of foliage that can handle both the high humidity of a shower and cool overnight temperatures. 

With that in mind, take a look at the following infographic for plants that are perfect for the job, as well as the benefits that come from adding a plant to your bathroom.

Benefits of Adding Plants to the Bathroom

Beyond the obvious visual appeal of greenery in the home bathroom, there are many other benefits to using plants in that space. Here are some of the potential advantages you can enjoy:

• Purified air for a fresher, cleaner environment

• Medicinal benefits, such as those offered by aloe vera 

• The invigorating and energizing impact of a natural element

• Improved concentration and/or productivity

• A positive influence on your mental health

• Relief from stress and anxiety

When it comes to the bathroom, plants can be a wonderful addition — aesthetically, emotionally and physically. So, look for varieties that do well in the bathroom environment, and begin enjoying all the benefits that can ensue.

Think about the conditions of your bathroom space. Does it get little natural light? Is it a half bath without a shower/tub or a fully equipped bath you use every day? What’s the average temperature in the room? Understanding your specific environment gives you a good place to start when choosing bathroom plants. Generally speaking, here are some good choices:
