Bathroom Plants

Picture the scene. It’s been a long hard day. The UK weather is bleak and cold. You come home from work and head indoors, ready to sink into a long, hot bath. You light the candles and climb into the tub, surrounded by the gorgeous greenery provided by your bathroom plants - delicate ferns dangle above you while elephant ears, calatheas and monsteras enclose you in a safe sanctuary of leaves. Ahhhh… bliss. 

Filling your bathroom with plants is one of the easiest ways to make it not just a place you have to be, but a place you want to be. But not all house plants love the warm, steamy conditions that a bathroom creates. Looking to buy bathroom plants in the UK? You’ve come to the right place! We've gathered together a selection of beautiful plants suitable for bathrooms, perfect for transforming your bathroom into your own tranquil indoor oasis. 

The Benefits of Bathroom Plants

The benefits of bathroom plants are many! As well as being a necessary place for your morning ablutions, your bathroom should be a calming space where you can go to destress and wash the day away. And what’s more calming than an indoor place filled with beautiful house plants?!

Studies have shown that indoor plants have powerful wellness-boosting properties, helping to lift our mood, lower blood pressure, reduce anxiety levels and make us feel safe. What better place to benefit from these amazing advantages than your bathroom? Plus, why waste all that lovely humidity when you could have a bunch of bathroom plants luxuriating in the steam? 

Which House Plants are Suitable for Bathrooms?

Finding good bathroom plants can be tricky. They need to love humid, steamy conditions, but also be tolerant of changing temperatures. Many bathrooms also have the added factor of low light conditions to consider when you buy bathroom plants online. 

But don’t worry, even taking into account these requirements, there are plenty of humidity-loving house plants that will be happy to make a home in your bathroom. 

Ferns 

Ferns can be fussy house plants when placed elsewhere in the home. But in bathrooms, they will thrive! Ferns love moisture, low light conditions and can tolerate cooler temperatures (think about the shady woodland areas where you see them in the wild).

With their trailing tendrils, ferns are also perfect hanging plants and make for excellent bathroom plants that use up less surface space. If your bathroom is on the shadier side, try hanging a Boston Fern to add some vibrant, full-bodied greenery, or opt for a delicate Lace Fern in a sunnier spot. 

Spider Plants

Another trailing charmer, Spider Plants are tolerant, fast-growing and visually striking. With adequate humidity (which your steamy bathroom will provide) and some indirect sunlight, they will produce plenty of babies or ‘spiderettes’, perfect for that jungly trailing vibe. Plus, you can separate off the spiderettes and share your bathroom plants with your friends! 

Weeping Figs

Weeping Figs thrive in humid, steamy conditions and so make the perfect house plant for your bathroom if you’ve got a bit of extra space to fill. With some bright, indirect light and minimal draft, this elegant little tree will flourish indoors, giving your bathroom a chic, spa-like feel. Note that weeping figs may drop their leaves when they get too cold, but they are usually quick to recover - just make sure that your bathroom doesn’t get too cool in the winter.

Bathroom Plants - Top Picks

Here at Bloombox Club UK, we have one of the most diverse ranges of UK indoor plants, including all the best plants for bathrooms. These are a few of our faves but check out the whole collection for even more bathroom-loving botanical beauties. 

This trailing bathroom plant is easy to look after and super speedy to grow. Trailing artfully from a high shelf or hanging planter, this vibrant green and gold vine will brighten up any bathroom. 

Known for its healing powers, Aloe Vera is one of the best houseplants for your bathroom. Its juicy succulent leaves are great at absorbing moisture and it prefers indirect light. Just be careful not to overwater Aloe Vera and she will reward you with air purifying powers and a healing gel, perfect for soothing sunburn. 

This humidity-loving house plant will thrive in the warm, steamy conditions of the bathroom. With unique markings and crinkle-cut leaves, this striking Calathea is a real statement piece. If you’re looking to buy bathroom plants that will cause a splash, this is the plant for you! 

This sculptural plant is a great way to add height and structure to your bathroom plant collection. Native to tropical jungles, this ornamental plant will thrive in the bathroom, as long as there’s plenty of bright, indirect light. 

Hanging Plants in your Bathroom

Bathrooms don’t usually have a lot of surface area to put your house plants on. Yes, there might be a windowsill here or a shelf there, but if you’re really going for that steamy indoor jungle feel, you might quickly run out of space. And let’s face it, indoor plants on the side of the bathtub are just an accident waiting to happen. 

Enter: hanging house plants like Pileas, Spider Plants and Oianthas. Hanging plants are the perfect indoor solution to the bathroom space problem, and plus, they are a great way to create the tropical paradise you see on Instagram. You can even hang small bathroom plants in the shower, so long as they are not being watered directly every time you turn it on. 

Grab yourself a few macrame plant hangers and lightweight planters and you’re ready to start buying bathroom plants online. If there aren’t many existing spots to hang things off (curtain rails, shower rods etc.) try using heavy-duty utility hooks that adhere to tiles, or attach some ceiling hooks.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where Should I Put Plants In My Bathroom?

When browsing bathroom plants online, keep your space in mind. Does your bathroom have a window? Does the window get bright sunlight? Do you have space for hanging bathroom plants? All of our detailed bathroom plant profiles come with recommendations about where to place them. 

If your bathroom gets bright indirect light, place your bathroom plants in sunny spots near the window. Cacti and other direct sun-loving bathroom plants will be happy on the windowsill. Just be sure not to place any of the house plants for your bathroom where the water will hit them directly (like on the floor of your shower). 

Do Bathroom Plants Need To Be Watered?

In general, your bathroom plants will need less regular watering than plants in other rooms because they will absorb more moisture from the air. However, just like with your other indoor plants, there are plenty of ways to check in with your bathroom plants to see if they’re thirsty. Does the soil feel dry? Are the leaves crispy? If you lift up the plant, does it feel light? 

These are sure signs that your plant needs a drink. If your plant looks discoloured and feels mushy or waterlogged, it has likely been overwatered and may need a pot with better drainage.

The handy thing about keeping indoor plants in your bathroom is that you can simply pop them in the shower or bath to water them! 

Can I Put A Cactus In My Bathroom?

You might not think a cactus is a good bathroom plant given their natural desert habitat. However, certain cacti can actually thrive in your bathroom! Choose a cactus that can tolerate lower light conditions and likes humidity and a little spiky friend can make a great indoor plant for your bathroom. 

If you’re lucky enough to have a super bright bathroom, this sun-worshipping Agave ‘Shaka Zulu’ cactus is the perfect addition to your bathroom windowsill. 

Is Aloe Vera A Good Bathroom Plant?

Aloe Vera is a good bathroom plant, due to its hardiness, moisture-absorbing powers and low light needs. Aloe Vera is a great bathroom plant for beginners as it's known for being almost impossible to kill! It doesn’t need much watering and the bathroom humidity alone will keep it happy and adequately moist. 

It’s also great to have Aloe Vera on hand in the bathroom for its impressive medical uses. The cooling gel inside your Aloe Vera leaves can be used as a topical treatment to soothe sunburn or other mild burns, insect bites or as a moisturiser to hydrate dry skin.

Can I put plants in my bathroom if it doesn’t have a window? 

Here at Bloombox Club, we do not recommend keeping plants in bathrooms with no windows. There are plenty of other ways to transform your bathroom space - try faux bathroom plants, crystals and shells. You can also jazz up the existing elements in your bathroom to add light and colour - invest in a patterned shower curtain, a luxury bath mat, a glittery toilet seat and plenty of mirrors.
