Plants to Spruce Up Your Bathroom
Would you like to spruce up your bathroom?
Including a plant is a perfect way to bring the beauty of nature indoors and also serves as a decorative addition, transforming an empty corner or windowsill in your room. Some plants are also well known for their air-purifying abilities.
With so many beautiful plants available, the choice can be a little overwhelming. Especially as some plants aren’t naturally suited to a steamy, bathroom environment.
We decided to venture to our local garden centre where we spoke to Bernie; an experienced horticulturalist with Ballyseedy Garden Centre who explains her top recommended plants for your bathroom with some excellent, helpful tips on caring for them.
Recommended Plants for Your Bathroom
The spider plant is a very popular trailing plant. With long spindly leaves, they are playful and easy to take care of.
Good in any light, apart from direct sunlight, water weekly.
Possibly the easiest fern to grow, the Boston fern is known for its elegance and air purifying abilities.
Keep in medium light to bright indirect light and water often.
Air purifying and lush, the evergreen Peace Lily is a true jungle plant that required very little sunlight and water.
Bright indirect light, to shade, regular watering, but do not allow to get soggy.
Orchids are a timeless beauty. Tall and elegant with graceful arching floral blooms, this species despite its delicate appearance, is an ideal orchid for beginners.
Medium to bright indirect light, keep out of the sun. Water every 2 weeks when in bloom.
A clear favourite amongst plant parents, the Monstera Deliciosa is nicknamed the Swiss Cheese Plant because of the holes in its leaves.
The Monstera loves humidity, so mist often or place on a humid pebble tray and you will notice the leaves getting bigger, with more slits and fenestrations.
Air purifying with feather type, green leaves, the Kentia Palm has got that Art Deco vibe going. South Pacific plant that grows slowly, meaning no frequent re-potting.
Medium to low light. Allow the top level of the soil to dry out between waterings.
