Blooming Bathrooms

Oct 26, 2011

 

As Earth’s natural air-fresheners, it seems only natural to put lots of plants in the room that needs freshening the most: the bathroom. The good news is plants, especially tropical ones, thrive in the bathrooms because of the mist and humidity created from tubbing and showering.

Want to add some greenery to your water closet? If your bathroom is low-light, try Spider plants, Bamboo, Peace Lilies, Boston Ferns and even Aloe Vera (the aloe can serve double duty to sooth scrapes and burns–so put one near your medicine cabinet).

If your bathroom is sunny and bright, you can plant Asparagus ferns, Gardenias and Orchids.

Also try Sansevieria– (Mother-in-law’s Tongue) in the bathroom. They flourish in low-light, they are very low-maintenence, and if that’s not enough to convince you– According to the book Bedroom Feng Shui it’s good Feng Shui to keep Sansevieria near the toilet bowl. Who new?
