What are the best plants for the bathroom?

Bathrooms often get the raw deal in the plant world. Seen as damp, dark, and devoid of natural light, many people write them off as botanical no-go zones. But hold on to your bath towels, plant lovers! Bellr is here to tell you that a bathroom can be a thriving haven for the most unexpected green allies. Imagine stepping into a steamy sanctuary, sunlight dappling through leaves, the air alive with the gentle rustle of foliage. Sounds pretty blissful, right?

Moisture Maniacs: Let's face it, bathrooms are humid havens. While some plants might wilt in this tropical sauna, others flourish. The Peace Lily thrives in the steamy air, even boosting your mood and filtering toxins while it's at it. For a low-maintenance hero, the Snake Plant stands tall, requiring minimal watering and soaking up the humidity like a champ.

Low-Light Luminaries: Not all bathrooms boast sun-drenched balconies. Fear not, shade dwellers! The Philodendron Heartleaf cascades with lush tendrils, bringing a touch of the jungle without demanding constant sunshine. And for a burst of vibrant green, the Epipremnum Aureum (Pothos) thrives in the shadows, its aerial roots reaching out like playful fingers.

Airborne Allies: Bathrooms can become breeding grounds for unwanted airborne nasties. But our leafy friends come to the rescue! The Boston Fern releases moisture and filters pollutants, while also adding a touch of bohemian charm. Remember, plants love a good misting, so give them a little spa treatment to keep them happy and air-purifying.

Tropical Touches: Craving a taste of the rainforest oasis? Bellr has your back! The Monstera Deliciosa adds a touch of drama with its signature split leaves, while the Aglaonema brings a burst of vibrant color with its variegated foliage. Hang them in a macramé pot, shower them with gentle sunlight, and voila! A mini jungle unfolds in your own steamy sanctuary.

Bonus Tip: Remember, not all plants are water-loving bathers. Avoid placing succulents or cacti in overly damp areas to prevent root rot. And if you have a shower without windows, stick to low-light-loving varieties to ensure their leafy happiness.
