Best Plants to Grow in the Shower

Using houseplants to add some greenery to your bathroom is nothing new. But recently, a trend has emerged that takes it one step further: growing plants right in the shower.

But it’s not just about turning your shower into a spa retreat. Some plants don’t just survive in the shower – they thrive there thanks to higher humidity levels than the rest of your home. Here are some examples of plants that would be very happy to live in your soul.

In addition to humidity, be sure to take into account the amount of natural light in your shower. Even with humidity, if the plant needs a lot of direct sunlight and your shower isn’t next to a window, your foliage won’t bloom.

Depending on the layout of your bathroom and shower, there are usually several places to store plants, including on the windowsill, hanging from the shower head, or in a small container attached to the wall (including those with suction cups).

With all of the above in mind, the following plants will appreciate the conditions in your soul:
