Ideal plants (not only) for bathrooms

The bathroom is often considered a refuge, a place where we can escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and immerse ourselves in a moment of peace and relaxation. Since this is one of the most used rooms in our homes, why not make it even more pleasant and aesthetic?

Plants suitable for the bathroom

 Adding plants to your bathroom can be a great way to achieve just that. Not only will plants bring greenery and beauty to a space, but they can also contribute to better air quality and an overall sense of well-being.

One of the main challenges when choosing plants for the bathroom is to find ones that tolerate its specific conditions well, such as higher humidity and often less natural light. For those lucky enough to have a bathroom with a window, the possibilities expand significantly.

Having a window in your bathroom is like winning the lottery for plant lovers; the door to a world where you can host some of the most beautiful green companions.

Among these prized plants are praying mantises, also known as Maranta or Calathea. These plants are famous for their beautiful leaf patterns and perhaps also for their demanding nature.
