Most Ferns, like the Maidenhair or Boston Fern, are grateful for a spot in your bathroom.

Either way, place the Fern on eye level and the feathery layers will add a green touch to your bathroom.
There are many advantages to putting this plant in the bathroom. Most importantly, the Snake Plant filters the air and maintains the humidity level in the room. Secondly, it’s easy maintenance and doesn’t need a lot of water. Sounds like the perfect bathroom plant, right?
This plant is bursting with (green) energy! Whether you let it grow from a hanging basket or let it climb up via the wall, it will certainly create an impressive look. The heart-shaped leaves of the plant often have beautiful markings. In China, they believe that the white edges of the leaves are the good green spirit of the plant, which makes sure to erase negative energy. In short: it’s a keeper!
Tillandsia – simply known as air plants – are often believed to live on air alone. However, that’s not true! Tillandsia need water, from which they absorb nutrients through their leaves. When you keep air plants in your bathroom, you wouldn’t have to water it regularly, as it absorbs humidity from the air. When they do need some extra water, they will let you know by curling their leaves.
Pothos, also called Devil’s Ivy, is low maintenance and low light indoor plant. Some would even say that it is quite indestructible, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves. The trailing plant thrives without sunlight and it can tolerate occasional overwatering and drought. Please make sure to keep them out of direct sunlight or the fun will only last for a short period. Pothos thrives in more humid environments like your bathroom; if the air is too dry the tips of the leaves will turn brown.
We end our list of bathroom plants with the Spathiphyllum, better known as the Peacy Lily, a tropical plant that loves a bit of humidity. When caring for the Peace Lily, keep the soil moist. In case it gets too dry, the leaves will wilt but when you give them a good drink they will perk up in no time. Did you know that the Peacy Lily is a natural air purifier? As a result, it filters harmful substances like benzene and ethyl chloride out of the air.
