Weinstein Bath & Kitchen Showroom – What Are the Best Plants for My Philadelphia Bathroom?

tubOur guide to the best plants for your bathroom include a variety of options, all of which add beauty and can also help to purify the air. At Weinstein Bath & Kitchen Showroom near Philadelphia, we can design and implement your ideal bathroom vanity space with fixtures and accessories from top brands, including Kohler. Consider the following plants for your bathroom:

Our Guide to Choosing Bathroom Plants

1. Aloe Vera
These succulents need a small amount of sunlight, so if your bathroom matches that need, this plant would be a great choice. Aloe Vera should be watered once a week.

2. Bamboo
These beautiful grass plants grow quickly. To manage the plant, create a barrier to house it, or shape it to create designs around picture frames and ornamental fixtures in your bathroom. Water this plant every 7 to 10 days.

3. Hanging Plants
Hanging plants are ideal for small bathrooms. Even up and out of the way, hanging plants are still quite beautiful and easy to maintain. Hanging plants should be watered at least once a day.

4. Spider Plants
The Spider Plant, one of the more popular household plants, is part of the lily family. During its growth, this plant should be watered occasionally. Once developed, a Spider Plant should be watered moderately to keep the soil moist.

5. Orchids
Orchids are colorful, ornamental plants. Orchids are perennials, so they will only beautify your bathroom for part of the year. Orchids do well in warm, humid environments and should be watered once or twice a week.

Once you choose a plant, take these three crucial points into consideration:

1. Lighting
Bathroom plants typically have low light requirements. Even so, changing the fixtures in your room to fluorescent light bulbs may be an option, since fluorescent bulbs release wavelengths of light that plants normally get from the sun.

2. Location
Depending on the size of your bathroom, you might consider placing plants in locations like the windowsills, in an open corner, on a bathroom vanity, or even in the shower.

3. Water
Plants get thirsty, so watering them regularly is a good idea. However, if you have a succulent plant (like aloe vera or cacti) reconsider a different plant if you know your bathroom has high humidity, as it can actually kill them.
