PROPERTY NEWS - Taking care of a plant can sometimes feel like an impossible task. If you water your plant too much or too little, it will die. If you give it too much or too little sunlight, it will die. And the same goes when you put too much or too little soil.
Plants that tend to be low maintenance are grown in low light and high humidity. What’s a better place to grow them than your very own bathroom?
Here is a list of 5 low maintenance plants you should grow in your bathroom:
Orchids are plants which thrive in high humidity (they need approximately 50-70% humidity to grow). It makes sense to grow these plants in your bathroom, as this area provides just enough indirect sunlight and wet air to allow these tropical blooms to flourish.
2. Snake plant
Known as ‘mother-in-law’s tongue,’ snake plants are low maintenance plants which also assist in purifying air from toxins such as formaldehyde, which is often present in cleaning supplies and sometimes, toilet paper.
Ferns require little maintenance as they have the ability to grow in humid conditions with low levels of lighting present. This makes ferns a perfect shower plant as the conditions encourage ferns to grow more lusciously.
Bamboo is a plant that can grow in any level of lighting as well as without soil, which makes it quite peculiar. To ensure the growth of bamboo, simply add pebbles to the vase it is in, whilst making certain that there is always water in the vase.
5. Spider plant
Spider plants require little to no nurturing just like many of the plants on this list, they also grow well in dim and humid environments. These plants require watering at least once or twice a week and medium lighting (direct sunlight will harm these plants). Furthermore, these plants also purify the air of toxins and grow buds, which can be re-potted and grown into new spider plants.
