Plants are true artists. With their existence they can turn any room into a small green oasis in no time at all. This also applies to the bathroom. Plants feel particularly at home there, because most of them particularly appreciate the year-round warmth and humidity in this room. The tropical plant species in particular prefer to stand in steamy mist and not far from splashing water in the bathroom. These types of flowers include exotic orchids and palms, easy-care bromeliads and tillandsias, delicate-leaved ferns and graceful grasses. You feel almost at home in the bathroom and their exotic charm fits in wonderfully with the ambience of this oasis of wellbeing. It is important that the plants match the style of the bathroom and that their vessels and planters harmonize with the colors, materials and surfaces of the tiles, sanitary ware and bathroom accessories.
You shouldn’t overdo it with plants in the bathroom. Especially in smaller bathrooms. One or two striking specimens are sufficient to enliven the bathroom and serve as an eye-catcher. Large plants such as palms and tropical trees require a lot of space in order to be able to have the right effect on the viewer. They also need a lot of light for their healthy growth and thus reserve space close to the window.
The most famous bath plant is certainly the Cyprus grass (Cyperus involucratus). Grasses are reminiscent of the beach and dunes and therefore go very well with the interior in the bathroom. The sedge (Carex brunnea ‘Variegata’) with its white striped leaves looks particularly beautiful in a glass pot filled with gravel. The woman’s hair (Scirpus cernuus) feels at home in the warm, damp bathroom and is not offensive even when it is being poured over. This grass looks very nice when you have several pots next to each other. The flowers of the moth orchid (Phalaenopsis) seem to float in the room and underline the lightness of the window decorations in the bathroom. Ivy also thrives in the bathroom and, as a climbing plant, offers plenty of space for creative decoration. The Ficus pumila, the dwarf among the rubber trees, also climbs or twines, depending on how you want it.
Caring for the green and flowering bathroom plants depends on their individual needs. It is advisable to seek advice from specialist retailers and garden centers and to pay attention to the care instructions for the individual plants. And here’s a tip from our editorial team: Most plants love to enjoy a lukewarm shower every now and then.
