The benefits that houseplants bring are endless. Not only do they bring life and color to your sacred living area, make you feel soft and bizarre, but they also do the double duty by taking care of the bad things for you so you don’t have to. They keep your fresh air at bay and eliminate the toxins for you. If you are one of those people who would like to keep plants nearby but fail to keep them alive after a week – we believe you, honey – you might want to put them in there. You read it correctly. As strange as it may seem, it could be the best place to keep them. Plants live on moisture, a lot of moisture. The regular exposure they get when they are in your bathroom is ideal. Even dimly lit plants are enough, as some plants that live on the lower floors of the forest have little good old sunshine. You’re lucky, Batman. Below are ideas on how to spice up your bathroom with all this green goodness.
Reminiscent of antlers, right? These guys are called Elkhorn Ferns. Most ferns don’t need much sunshine and can stay in your shady bathroom until the sun shines through your windows. Attaching your ferns to a wall in some fancy frames is a bizarre way to showcase your new fern friends.
These fast growing little guys come in all shapes and sizes and are the gorgeous shade of green you’ll ever experience (if you haven’t seen Alex Pettyers peeper). This great plant is a pleasure, but needs a good amount of water all day, so you need to keep a close eye. The maintenance and care of this plant is worthwhile. Get a load of this beautiful little bamboo tree.
For those of you who have a skylight, there are plenty of ways to get some amazing things out of your plants lying around, just like this beautiful zen-style bathroom also offers bamboo, but from a completely different perspective. It is impossible to leave this place without reaching Zen or untying all knots.
These breathtaking things are called “waiting for them”. Living walls, were recognized some time ago and still have a good following. Both a style statement and an alternative to holding potted plants, there are a lot of companies that make money making living walls out of plants, and a lot of other DIY tutorials that float around if you want to create something similar. The possibilities are endless and the best tips for this pleasure include: good old moss and your friendly fern from the neighborhood. Play up your living walls by mixing in other plants that go well with mosses and ferns and love damp bathrooms as much as they do! Here is a new variant of the living wall that was created for the 2013 solar decathlon and cleans when it cools down.
Ingenious aloe vera
These guys come in a variety of shapes, sizes, what do you have? They are uncomplicated and fairly easy to care for and only need a little water about once a month because they are desert plants. They need a lot of light because these desert people know how to take in this sun. Therefore, aloe is perfect for corners with a lot of vitamin D. If there is not too much sun in your bathroom, do not sweat! A place in front of a window would be fine, no matter how small.
This great beauty always creates warm, spa-like atmospheres wherever you want to put them. It is a plant that does not require much. The combination of Monstera with natural materials, mostly like wood, goes well with large leaves. Large or small spaces, this plant will be right at home.
Mother in law tongue
This cleverly named plant fits in perfectly, is inexpensive and looks great in your bathroom. Place it on the side of your tub, mixing in some crystals and the like, and you’re done. Funny fact! This hard-working plant is ideal for absorbing toxins. Cool what? To top it off, they’re lucky plants in West Africa!
The great concept of covering not so pretty pipes under the sink is both aesthetically and economically appealing. How wise to keep them where they can soak up all the drops that occur when cleaning your hands or washing up!
Keep this inside! The ivy will grow around and crawl on almost everything! And to answer that question in your head, you can certainly tame this stubborn little plant in some areas instead of others, although it always grows towards the light. It’s best to keep this in mind.
Indoor / outdoor bliss
Imagine you are in this masterly design; warm water with the songs of the birds and the trill of the frogs floating gently in the air. Here you will not only find space for your plants, but also space for you!
