6 Houseplants That Would Love to Live in Your Bathroom

Home DIY

Bathrooms have tricky environments — low light, high moisture, and warm temperatures — and finding a houseplant that can thrive in this room can be a difficult task. Tropical plants are often the best for this environment because of their resiliency and love for moisture.

I’ve gathered a list of our favorite houseplants that will flourish and pretty-up your bathroom — because even this room deserves a little love and greenery too! Houseplants for your bathroom? I’ve got you covered!

6 Houseplants That Would Love to Live in Your Bathroom

Snake Plant

Formally known as the Sansevieria, the Snake Plant is an excellent choice for any home environment, but especially a bathroom due to its adaptability. It is extremely tolerant—in fact it’s been called nearly impossible to kill—and if kept in a humid bathroom, they might need little to no water whatsoever. They are also known to filter toxins from the air, perfect to counteract bathroom cleaning products.


With over 40 varieties to choose from, finding a Dracaena reflexa that fits your bathroom décor is simple and straightforward. Because Dracaena’s should never be placed in direct sunlight, bathrooms are a great choice for these plants. This plant also prefers high levels of humidity and as a slow grower, it can stay in one spot without maintenance for long periods of time.

Devil’s Ivy

As one of the easiest plants to grow, Devil’s Ivy is a hardy, carefree houseplant that is relatively laidback. The plant can reach about four inches in length indoors, which can be a great decoration for bathrooms with windowsills. This is also a great place for your Devil’s Ivy because it needs sunlight. Note: Devil’s Ivy is toxic, so keep out of reach of children and pets. We have one in our bay window and it is so pretty and bright!


Tillandsias, often referred to as air plants, do not require soil to grow, meaning they are perfect for a variety of environments. Keep them in your shower window—where you can easily spray them with water on occasion—or hang your air plants from a geranium and they will thrive for a long time. Have 3 shipped to your house for under $20 on Amazon. 


With its well-known capabilities of purifying the air, golden Pothos are a beautiful and practical addition to a bathroom. They are extremely versatile and require no special care; Pothos tolerate low light, but grow well in all types, and prefer moist soil. Because it can grow quite rapidly, hanging it from a shelf or ceiling allow the vines to rail down and grow naturally.

Eternity Plant AKA ZZ Plant

Also known as a ZZ plant, the Eternity Plant can survive in low-light conditions and is a type of succulent—meaning it requires little to no maintenance. This plant should only be watered every one or two weeks and because of its hardiness, it is also nearly impossible to kill. Ours used to be in our sunroom, but since moving it to our bathroom it has grown like crazy!
