Would you put plants in your bathroom? Bedroom? No? Well, it’s time to think again. Decorative plants will make your home pretty and purify the air in each and every room. Pretty plants have incredible power and we have listed the best greenery for your home.
Some plants require low light which makes them perfect for your bathroom. A tiny fluorescent light bulb will do the trick for you.
Humidity and temperature
Most plants don’t like too much humidity and high temperature. Tropical flora thrives well in bathrooms.
Space and position
Bathrooms are small and it’s almost impossible to fit a large plant inside them. You can use hanging plants as a better alternative.
