Bathroom/shower plants

Know any good bathroom/shower plants.. 
i’d like a climber really if one exists under humid conditions? If not I like the hanging type or something that flowers?.. 
All thoughts much appreciated.. 


  • I have my Money plant in mine, I also once had a maiden hair fern, that was on a high shelf and hung down, loved it in there,

    Spider plants, maidenhair ferns, asparagus ferns, orchids.

    What kind of light does the room get?
    Tradition is just peer pressure from dead people
  • I'd also like help please on this.

    Maidenhair fern didn't fare well as not enough light.  Boston fern didn't either as leaf tips rotted.

    Which plants would love the constant moisture / spray yet whose leaves won't rot?

    I have moth orchids on the window sill above the toilet.  I think as long as you have good light levels, like a window actually in your bathroom, most house plants would do fine there.  Wouldn’t need to worry about red spider mites.  : )

    @hansen_stan ... I hope you’re recovering from the Covid infection you told us about in your first post. 

    Just thought I’d mention that while personal recommendations based on personal experience have always been welcome on this forum ... your dredging up of an old post in order to post a link to a Miami bathroom remodelling firm looks very much like  advertising to me. You will see from the T&Cs that all advertising has to be paid for ... you can find the advertising team’s contact details at the foot of the page. 

    Or do you really have personal experience of using Miami Tile & Remodelling to work on your home?  They look pretty pricey for a recently married 21year old to me ... but of course you may be a spectacularly wealthy young man ... what do I know?

    However I suspect that wealthy young men might not want to waste their time trawling forums for old posts in order to be paid peanuts to increase various businesses’ online presence. 

    I wonder if Miami Tile and Remodelling will think that their money was well spent if they get a load of enquiries for quotations from gardeners in the UK?🤪

    Well done Dove, I have tried various ferns in my bathroom, they didn't survive.  At the moment I have a large Peace Lily,Phaelanopsis, (in flower) and Tradescantia, trained to go up a mini wooden trellis.  I love plants, they are good for you, but mine serve another purpose, too..  They are a screen,at the bottom of the window, which opens into our conservatory, it's north facing, not wanting to block out light by putting up a blind. We had the old original single glazed wooden window (Hubby made that into a cold frame) you couldn't see through the 50 odd year old patterned glass, but you can on the new double glazed model
