What Plants Can I Put in my Bathroom?

Fact: plants are a great way to liven up a space and even have benefits for your physical health, mental health, and your home’s indoor air quality. While you may want to add some foliage to your bathroom's decor right away, you'll have to carefully decide which ones can thrive in high-humidity, first. These are some of the best houseplants for bathrooms that can spruce up your space with a breath of fresh air and vibrant greenery.

Spider Plant

These low-maintenance plants only need to be watered once or twice a week; they're excellent at removing impurities and harmful toxins from the air, including formaldehyde and carbon monoxide.

Bamboo

Refined and exotic, bamboo has a sleek elegance that adds a spa-like quality to your bathroom. Bamboo is extremely durable, easy to care for, and barely requires any soil to grow. It also requires little light, so even small bathrooms with limited natural light will be able to host this zen plant.

Aloe Vera

Aloe vera is not only an excellent houseplant but can also be a wonderful home remedy for soothing acne, rosacea, sunburns, and more. Aloe vera is low-maintenance but does require plenty of sunlight, so it's best reserved for bathrooms that have windows.

Snake Plant

You might also find these sharp-pointed plants called "Sansevieria.“ They require practically no care and can thrive just fine in any bathroom. They're also sleek and tall, so you won't need a lot of space to accommodate a pot; and they're excellent air filters that remove the formaldehyde produced by cleaners and other everyday bathroom essentials (i.e., toilet paper, various cosmetics, etcetera).
