Do you feel like the decor in your bathroom is missing something? Houseplants are a great way to add a personal touch to your space and to brighten your day. The humidity of a bathroom makes it a great location for plants that appreciate extra moisture. Depending on the level of light your bathroom receives, there is an ideal plant for you.

If you are interested in finding the perfect plant for your bathroom space, read on to learn more!

Boston Ferns

Boston ferns are a great choice for first-time houseplant owners because they are easy to care for. These plants love high humidity, making them well suited for the bathroom. If your bathroom has a window that allows bright, indirect sunlight to your fern, you will find that it grows quickly.

Display your fern on a small table, countertop, or consider hanging it from the ceiling.

Water it once or twice a week, and regularly check to make sure the soil does not dry out completely.

Air Plants

Air plants are a low-maintenance choice for a bathroom houseplant. These unique plants do not need soil to grow, so they can be displayed in exciting ways! With a variety of sizes, shapes, and colors to choose from, air plants will do well in any bathroom. 

Since air plants do not need soil to grow, the watering process is a bit different than other houseplants. Air plants pull moisture out of the air, but if your bathroom is less humid you will need to water them. You can either soak them in a container of water for fifteen minutes or mist them. Make sure to dry the air plants upside down to prevent the leaves from rotting. 

Snake Plants

Snake plants are one of the best houseplants for air purification. They are unique because they are able to release oxygen at night. They even filter the air of formaldehyde, benzene, and other harmful pollutants. 

These plants are a great choice for bathrooms that receive less light. Depending on the humidity in your bathroom, a snake plant should be watered once every 2 to 8 weeks. The hardy snake plant is a great choice for the laid-back houseplant owner!


Native to tropical regions, bromeliads are a great way to add color to a bathroom space. Their long-lasting blooms come in a variety of shades of pink, red, orange, and yellow. The humidity of your bathroom will help these plants thrive.

Bathrooms that receive a moderate amount of sunlight are best for bromeliads. Too much sun and a bromeliad can get bleached out, and not enough sun can turn the plants’ leaves brown. 

The tank, or vase-shaped space at the center of the plant where the leaves overlap, will collect water. Keep water in this tank at all times, but do not allow it to stagnate. Changing the water out once a week will help prevent rotting.

Displaying houseplants is a great way to customize your space to reflect your personal style! Decorating your bathroom with houseplants does not have to be a chore with these low-maintenance options.
