Not every plant is suitable for an humid and warm space. These are 4 plants that come into their own in the bathroom:
• The Tillandsia: this tropical plant has its roots in Central and South America. The plant absorbs its nutrients from the air. A great idea is to hang this so-called air plant by the sink!
• The Spathiphyllum: this plant – also called the ‘spoon plant’ – is an air purifying plant, which is a reason why it is very suitable to place it in a bathroom. The Spathiphyllum looks lovely in a large pot in the corner of the bathroom, or next to the bath. The plant is available in various sizes.
• The Ficus Pumila: a creeper originating from the Far East. Looks good in line next to each other! Also nice to hang, just like the Tillandsia.
• The Adiantum: a fern with Chinese roots. The plant varies from green-leaved to bronze-colored cultivars. Put the different variations in a simple pot and create a mix of ferns!
