5 Plants That can Thrive in a Bathroom Without a lot of Natural Light

    House plants often thrive in  or near window sills. Bathrooms are also common spaces for house plants, but they are often very different from plants that grow in the living room or kitchen. Bathrooms have less light and more moisture than most rooms in your house. Adding a plant to your bathroom can add a splash of natural color, help purify the air, and add a peaceful quality to the space. We will be discussing a few of the most popular, low maintenance plants can thrive in a bathroom environment.
The Cast Iron Plant is a favorite for many homeowners looking to add green to their bathroom. This plant thrives in temperatures of the average home, while looking for a bit more moisture than most plants. They don’t require much watering; and are great for those who are notorious for letting plants die off. They are a good starter plant for new homeowners, and are often housewarming gifts. They are often used in bigger pots that can be situated on the floor of the bathroom, near the vanity.
    Lucky Bamboo is another plant that requires little effort to take care of. It is a much smaller plant, and can easily fit on your vanity or toilet tank. Lucky Bamboo is probably the least expensive option on this list. It grows fast, but a few cuts every now and then can keep the little shoots at the height you like.
    Spider plants are among the most highly rated plants by NASA for air filtration. They require very little sunlight, and the high moisture environment of a bathroom suits them well. They are usually available in two styles. One is solid green, and the other has a pale yellow outline to the green leaves. 
    Orchids are the best flower for a bathroom. They naturally grow in low to medium light, thrive in moist environments, and come in a wide assortment of colors. They prefer indirect or artificial sunlight, so they can adapt well to a bathroom with a small window. 
    Ferns grow where light is low and soil is moist across most of the world. Ferns have been around since before the dinosaurs, and for good reason, they are sturdy and hearty plants, that can adapt well to their environment.
