Corridor, living room, kitchen, bedroom, stairs – in these places in the house you can most often find plants. However, there is no obstacle to place them also in the bathroom. Many of them feel well in such conditions. There are plenty of species of plants all over the world and each of them needs different conditions. Some like sunny places, others prefer to hide in partial shade. Some prefer permanently wet soil, while others can be dried out a little every now and then. There are also those that require a lot of attention, which need to be frequently fertilized, replanted or the leaves wiped of dust or regularly sprayed with water.
So there’s nothing to stop you from enjoying beautiful plants in your bathroom too. You can easily find plants that feel at home in rooms where there is usually no window and the air is quite humid.
