If you’re looking for new tips to decorate your bathroom, we have the perfect suggestion for you. Plants offer a budget-friendly way to liven up your apartment. Better yet, they cleanse the air supply of your space and benefit your mood big-time.

You might think your bathroom to be off-limits to houseplants, due to the high humidity levels and low light, which can easily impact the growth of many plant types. Luckily, these four species of common houseplants thrive in these conditions, making them ideal picks for your bathroom. Here are our favorites below.

Spider Plant

They’re a classic for a reason! Spider plants are always in style, which is great news if you’re looking for a bathroom plant that will withstand trends. Spider plants are easy to grow and adapt to low light levels. For best results, keep them slightly moist during spring to summer, and a little drier in winter.

Maidenhair Fern

If you’re looking for a delicate, lacy look, turn to Maidenhair Ferns. These plants love high humidity, making them perfect for situating next to your shower. Bright, indirect light and constant moisture are your best bets if you want to keep the Maidenhair Fern in tip-top shape.

Boston Fern

Boston Ferns are typically high-maintenance – unless you place them in your bathroom. That’s because this type of fern thrives in humidity. Because they also require a lot of light, they’ll do well near a bathroom window. Keep a broom handy, too – they drop leaves often, so you will want to pick them up, as needed.

Peace Lily

Lilies add a timeless touch to just about every room. So, why not inject some classic style into your bathroom with a Peace Lily? They’re low-maintenance, and despite seeking out moderate to bright light, peace lilies adapt well to low light levels.
