The 4 Best Plants For your Bathroom

Wednesday August 29, 2018 ● By Chelsea Keim // Place Coorparoo


Plants are a great way to achieve an easy ‘wow-factor’ in your bathroom.

They add a natural element to the space along with an extra bit of colour and flare, however it’s important to know which plants will thrive in your bathroom, and what plants to avoid in this space. 

The bathroom may not be the first room that comes to mind when considering getting indoor plants for your home, but your bathroom provides an ideal growing environment for specific plants. Here are four of the best plants for your bathroom.


If you want to add a tropical vibe to your bathroom, consider styling with an Orchid. Known for their temperamental behaviour, Orchids are one of the best plants for your bathroom and can happily live there for months. They keep their gorgeous flowers for months at a time and can thrive in bathrooms due to the complimentary damp, warm conditions a steamy bathroom produces.

Snake Plant

If you’re a serial plant killer, then the snake plant is the best plant for you and your bathroom. 

This particular species can tolerate various conditions. They survive in situations with no light or bright/direct light and they require little to no water. Keeping them in a damp bathroom minimises the need for direct watering, too. They are low maintenance and will add a unique pop of greenery to your bathroom.

Weeping Fig

If your bathroom has the space to cater to a larger plant, the weeping fig will be perfect. This particular type of plant is a great plant for your bathroom because they enjoy humidity and bright light. In some cases cold drafts can cause weeping figs to lose their leaves, but they are quick to recover.

Heart Leaf Philodendron

This little gem looks fantastic hanging in baskets or planters, making them a perfect choice for small spaces like your bathroom. Heart Leaf Philodendrons are hard plants to kill, making them an excellent low-maintenance choice. The steam and mist from your shower will be a great watering session for your plant, ensuring no need for regular watering. This is by far one of the best plants for your bathroom.
