The 7 best indoor plants for your bathroom in Perth
Even in low light and high humidity, these indoor plants will thrive in a warm bathroom in Perth.
Bringing greenery in the bathroom in the form of indoor plants purifies the air, softens the lines of hard surfaces and provides a welcome burst of nature in a space that is often wanting of texture and warmth.
But not all indoor plants thrive in humid rooms that don't receive a lot of sunlight. If you want to include an indoor plant or two in your bathroom, these seven plants will work best.
- ZANZIBAR PLANT
Possibly the easiest plant to grow indoors, the hardy Zanzibar Gem will tolerate low light, so doesn't even need to sit near your bathroom window.
Schlumbergera bridgesii is hard to say but easy to look at. Zygocactus look lovely all year round draping down from a window orhigh shelfand will even give a lovely burst of colour in autumn and winter when flowering. Take care not to put them in a place where they'll be knocked as the stems tend to break easily.
- PHALAENOPSIS ORCHID
Another lover ofindirect sunlight, an orchid loves ahigh humidityenvironment so does well in a bathroom with only a littlenatural light. Verylow maintenance, orchids virtually thrive on neglect. Sit one on your vanity for a touch of elegance or group a few together in a rustic container. Keep the roots damp but not wet.
In terms ofhanging plants, this is alow-maintenancewonder! Perfect in every kind of pot - from ahanging basketto a large pot stand - this feathery fern drapes beautifully and is one of thebest plantsto bring into yourhumid bathroom,as it loves a little misting and needs minimal care. Try an oversized specimen in a small bathroomfor maximum va-va-voom!
Anotherindoor plantthat's practically impossible to kill, thepeace lilythrives inindirect lightand, due to its generous wide leaves, works hard atair-purifyingwhilst looking lush and fabulous. The ultimate chameleon, the peace lilyis equally at home potted in a blue and white chinoiserie ceramic pot or as part of a display of othertropical plants.
- JAPANESE MAPLE
Not strictly indoors, this is a terrific way to get the best of both worlds - growing a plant outdoors, yet enjoying it from inside the bathroom. This floor-to-ceiling glass window allows the timber, tree and textures into the bathroom whilst it basks in the bright light of sunshine in a secluded courtyard.
Lovely for a little texture and colour,peperomiais easy to grow indoors, depending on thelight levels. Away fromdirect sunlight, they fare well, though don't like to be too wet so work best in a well-ventilated bathroom.
