Plants for bathrooms

Does anyone have any suggestions for plants that would enjoy the moist environment of a bathroom? It gets a reasonable amount of light in there during the day.

    Orchids - they like a moist atmosphere, light but out of direct sunshine .

    good call Forester2, you can never have too many phalaenopsis.

    I have a peace lily (Spathiphyllum) in my bathroom but it is underneath the window to be in a shadier position.

    I agree with Mike, re accumulation of dust, I always solved this by putting the plants out in the rain to wash it all off (not cold rain though) I grew a Tradescantia for years in my bathroom, with fairly low light levels, just put it out for a wash in the rain every now and then....Agree other recommendations, Ferns and Orchids.. Good luck whatever you choose.
