First, take note of what makes a good “bathroom plant.” You will want to find plants that do well with humidity or require moderate humidity and plants that can do well with medium to low light. The following are plants that can thrive in humid locations, such as the bathroom where showers and baths bring moisture to the air.

Pilea, or the Pass It On Plant, is a compact plant with vibrant green leaves.

The large, round green leaves cheer up any space, and since the plant does well with humidity, it can thrive on a bathroom shelf.

Lucky Bamboo

Bamboo is a low maintenance plant that is ideal for a warm, humid environment such as the bathroom.

This plant requires very little maintenance, and can be shaped into unique growing patterns if you have the time and patience.
