Green plants and flowers make any room lively, fresh and inviting. However, plants in bathrooms are rather rare. That’s understandable, by the way, because our bathrooms are basically small, have a tiny bottom-hung window and that’s why the lighting conditions there are bad. In addition, the room temperature is usually higher than in the rest of the living area. Not to mention the humidity. The humidity in the bathroom is extremely high, which means that demanding plants can hardly thrive there. For these reasons, most people think that green plants have no place in the bathroom.

The pea plant is ideal for the bath.
- pea plant
The pea plant is also called string of pearls because of its small green leaves. It is made for the bathroom because it is slightly succulent. Its small, pea-like leaves are good at storing water. Therefore, you only need to water the pea plant on very hot summer days. It does well in a shady or semi-shady location, at temperatures between 10 and 15 degrees C. However, it does not tolerate waterlogging, so you must be careful that there is no water in the saucer for days. This leads to rotting of the roots and is not desirable at all. In such a case, you must repot immediately!
The string of pearls cuts a fine figure in the bathroom.
The lucky feather feels best next to bow hemp, spider plants, ferns and other typical green plants for the bathroom.
- lucky feather
Lucky Feather is an attractive foliage plant also known as Zamie or Zamioculcas. It is robust and easy to care for. Its glossy, evergreen leaves like partial shade. The lucky feather can also be in a place in the bathroom where there is little daylight. Its growing season is from March to September and the plant can reach a height of 60 to 90 cm. She is undemanding. If the lucky feather is in your bathroom, it stores water in the rhizomes, ie it is easy to care for and you rarely have to water or fertilize it.
Extra tip: However, all parts of the Zamie are considered slightly poisonous, so caution is advised with this plant! Any contact with the mucous membrane can cause burning and itching, redness is also possible.
The mountain palm brings a touch of green to this modern bathroom decorated in light and dark grey.
- mountain palm
We also call the dainty mountain palm the Mexican mountain palm because it originally comes from the mountains of Mexico. It has a thin, very elegant trunk and approx. 50 – 60 cm long evergreen leaves. These are slightly curved and multiply pinnate. The mountain palm is a classic bathroom plant because it likes it dark or shady. In addition, she feels very good in high humidity. Watering is also not a problem, because the root ball of the mountain palm should always be slightly damp. The plant tolerates temperatures from 12 degrees in winter to over 20 degrees C in summer. So, ideal for the bathroom!
