Hello plant lovers,
Bathroom plants, a concept that you increasingly encounter online. Yet, it is not often used in people’s homes. Why is that? Bathrooms can be nicely supplemented with plants. An example is the above bathroom. How nice would it be if some plants were added to it? We are happy to help you make the “green bathroom” project a success. It is wonderful to add plants to the place where you can relax during a shower or a nice warm bath.
What should you look for when choosing plants for the bathroom? Always look first at the light that enters the bathroom. One thing that is certain is that plants need light. If you don’t have light in your bathroom, you better go for an artificial plant. Plants cannot do without light. Also take a good look at the humidity of a bathroom. That differs per bathroom, for example, having a suction system or not makes a difference. Keep a close eye on the soil of the plants, for example feel in the soil to see if the plants need water. If you take these two things into account, then it should be fine and you can ultimately enjoy your plants in your green bathroom.
Due to the special circumstances (shower, bath and heating) that your bathroom plants have to undergo every day, it is important to choose plants that are strong and can withstand an extra water drop or slightly less light.
We have listed a few strong green plants from the Eden Collection:
- Chlorophytum ocean: This plant indicates itself well when it needs water. Then the color of the plant changes. Ideal in a humid environment, you know exactly when to water or not. The Chlorophytum does love light.
- Monstera minima: Whoever likes a green grower can go for the Monstera minima. A plant that grows well in both light and less light. The plant likes a moist soil, ideal in a moist environment.
- Peperomia pepper pot: A nice hanging plant with succulent properties. The plant stores water in the leaves, it uses water sparingly. So with this plant it may be that extra watering is not necessary either. The plant needs indirect light, so you can hang it at best in a half-shade spot.
- Philodendron hastatum: A beautiful gray addition to your green oasis is the special Philodendron hastatum. A plant that likes indirect sunlight and a moist soil. Also perfect in a bathroom, keep an eye on the plant for extra water.
- Rhipsalis: There are several types of Rhipsalis that are very suitable for the bathroom. The plants love indirect light and a little water every week. Due to the moist nature of the bathroom, you may not even have to give them extra water. Perfect right?
- Tradescantia zebrina: A colorful plant that also stands out for its strong character. The plant can stand well in the sun, an ideal plant for a light spot.
With these care tips and examples of plants that are suitable for the bathroom, it should be possible for everyone to make a green bathroom!
