Soften the chilly interior of the bathroom with indoor plants that compliment faience and tile. With lush greenery surrounding the water, the spa resembles a tropical spa.
The plants need light, however, even if the light is minimal. You can do this by using artificial light or periodically setting out the plants on an open windowsill with natural light. Do not forget to water them regularly and to spray them according to the characteristics of their types.
Would it be okay if plants were kept in the bathroom? It is okay to have plants in the bathroom. As you know, most of the plants in the bathroom are tropical species. A bathroom’s microclimate is similar to a topic, so many plants thrive in a bathroom. Your bathroom plants should thrive in moisture and be shade tolerant. Artificial light can help you cover up any light deficiency.
What plants can be placed in the bathroom?
No interior is complete and harmonious without the presence of indoor plants. Greenery is capable of more than simply bringing beauty to an indoor space.
- fill the enclosed area with oxygen;
- absorb excess fumes and regulate humidity;
- The smell will be eliminated from the air and will act as a barrier against the spreading of unpleasant odors.
It is for this reason that there is no doubt regarding the proper placement of indoor plants and flowers in the bathroom. Before you go for the deal, take a moment to consider the following:
- You should pick a shade-loving plant or one that can withstand moisture in the bathroom.
- You need to create a design which suits the interior of the room (it is best to rely on professionals or look at readymade options when designing).
- Water procedures should not be interfered with by it.
Once you have met all these requirements, you can proceed to selecting the plants themselves. Almost every tropical species is suitable for landscaping the bathroom.
Among the eleven plants I’ll discuss, I’ll discuss which are best suited to keep in a bathroom.
1. Dracaena Sander or Indoor Bamboo
When placed in a transparent vase of water or a regular pot with soil, bamboo looks stylish. However, it can often be lost amongst all the rest of the plants. Therefore, it is best to place it alone.
The bamboo prefers partial shade and is unaffected by humidity and heat. However, bamboo grows very quickly, so you should plan for additional space in advance.
2. Snake Plant
Legends surround her toughness and simplicity, and she is also an excellent air purifier. Until recently, she needed only a little light and water. Young, short sansevieria plants were suitable for embellishing the washbasin.
In the corners of the bathroom, you could consider large adult plants that germinate with leaves down, multiplying with air rhizomes if hung in a cachepot.
3. Spider plant
The prickly nandina is a very popular houseplant due to its endurance and decorativeness as well as its suitability for use in the bathroom.
On high horizontal surfaces, like cabinets or cache-pots, the fluff coat of spider plant or chlorophytum looks best. It grows so naturally and feels nice in the shade.
This flower has been associated with strong moods and high demands on care. But phalaenopsis (“Butterfly”) and paphiopedilum (“Venus slipper”), two of the 20,000 species of orchids bathrooms can tolerate the conditions. They are ideal for modern interiors.
With echoed beauty in the mirror, this flower becomes a beautiful decorative element for the washbasin. They need high humidity and soft light, which are easy to provide in the bathroom.
Calatheas are known for their colorful leaves with expressive veins. Calatheas thrive at minimum humidity of 90% and warmth of +16 °C/60.8 °F.
Watering with warm water is more effective than water in partial shade with a small glimmer of sunlight. To sharp temperature changes, the plant immediately begins to wither.
Moisture is as important as light for this plant. You need to keep the soil in the pot at all times, but not too wet.
There are many advantages to philodendrons, especially the fact that they come in a variety of sizes and they can be used both as a decoration for your home and for a living space.
These plants grow upward or ground creeping, and they are suited for indoor decoration. They grow naturally in subtropical regions, and they are adapted to tree life in shady forests.
In a slowly lit bath, Ivy will be quite comfortable. However, it will shrink very quickly in dry hot air. The plant is ideal for decorating upper shelves or vertical landscaping. Ivy is an excellent air purifier.
8. Boston Fern
This plant is more commonly known as an indoor houseplant. It does not need direct sunlight to grow. That is why it is often found in landscaping the bathroom. However, it does better in a room with a window.
In the absence of sunlight, the Boston fern begins to drop leaves. However, it needs regular watering and is not afraid of moisture. A weak water stream under a warm shower once a week is sufficient for the shoots.
9. Swiss cheese plant
The vine is particularly popular among gardeners because of its universality and hardiness. Its optimum temperature is 23–25°C (68°F–77°F). If you raise the temperature, however, it will begin to actively grow. Swiss cheese plant does not like dry air. It prefers a humid environment.
Therefore, it must be sprayed regularly. You would be amazed to know this plant is able to predict the weather. Beautiful cirrus leaves grow only in partial shade or moderate light. If drops of water form on the leaves, then rain will fall on the street.
10. Succulent Florarium
Make a florarium yourself at home. It makes a wonderful solution for decorating a small bath. In a vase or decorative bottle, this unusual mini-garden allows you to grow a tropical forest. It has the special feature of forming an eco-system inside the container.
These plants form a complete composition that regulates plant growth, temperature, and humidity levels.
Water the plants once every two weeks. Since they grow slowly, they maintain their decorative appearance for a long time. Caring for the florarium is very easy.
11. Moss Terrarium
Likewise, you can make a moss terrarium just as you do a florarium. It looks almost identical to the compositions shown above; the only difference is the components.
The moss will be put into the containers (or transparent containers) as can already be seen from the name.
Many craftswomen use miniatures of various objects inside, along with figurines and other decorations.
A moss plant grows best when it is in a moist shaded area. Therefore, a moss terrarium is a super decoration idea for your bathroom.
Furthermore, caring for the terrarium is extremely straightforward, since all that needs to be done is spray the moss every 2 to 3 days.
Placement and care rules
Our bathroom plants were chosen as a result of their ability to handle humidity and shade. There are a couple of other factors you ought to keep in mind if you are keeping them alive in the bathroom.
You can avoid fungi growth in the bathroom by leaving the door open, which will prevent you from noticing the appearance of mold in the bathroom.
If there is no window in the bathroom, you should think about installing extra lamps for artificial light. Put flower pots on the balcony or window sill for at least a few hours if this is not possible.
Water plants only when the topsoil of the pot starts to dry out if the room is very humid.
Wipe the plants’ leaves as often as possible with toothpaste and soapy water drops to allow them to breathe normally.
You need to think carefully about where and how to place the flower:
- The shelves above the mirror are perfect for displaying hanging plants.
- You can arrange flowers in tubs at the corners of a bathroom with a lot of space, and lush bushes will look good in special stands.
- If you wish to make an evening romantic, place flower pots next to the bath, arranged with candles. But if you want to make an evening intimate, a bath with flowers will help.
In case you still cannot bear to have flower plants in your bathroom, you may want to consider decorating your interior with fresh flower bouquets or artificial compositions. In any case, you get to decide how to decorate the room!
