Bamboo

Bamboo is very easy to grow. It doesn’t require much sun and you can just put them in an area with indirect sunlight. It requires little maintenance, too – no soil needed! Just tick a stalk in a pebble-filled container, put in water, and you’re good to go. You can change the water every 2-4 weeks.

Ivy

Ivy plants, when hung, are great as bathroom ornaments. Believe me when I say these plants instantly brighten up a space. Of course, they look lovely cascading down hanging baskets. But did you know that they also help purify the air? In fact, NASA rated it as one of the top plants that help keep the air bacteria-free.

Orchids

Orchids are perfect for the bathroom. They’re beautiful to look at, making it the perfect piece to beautify a bland, boring space. Additionally, they thrive in areas with indirect sunlight and those with high humidity levels. Place them on top of your sink or beside your bath tub. You’ll love having them there.

Snake Plants

Snake plants will do well inside bathrooms. After all, they can survive areas with low light levels and are flexible when it comes to water and heat. Additionally, they also help filter out the toxins present in bathroom air. If you’re using cleaning products and tile grout with formaldehyde, snake plants are perfect for you!

Succulents

Succulents live well in low light areas. They also require very little water. Basically, these plants don’t require much commitment from you. Plus, you can put them up on vertical planters and hang them on your bathroom wall. Great idea, isn’t it?
