2. Aloe Vera

This one is not just pretty but useful too! They call it the 'plant of immortality', part of the succulent family. This plant might just survive with the bathroom humidity alone as it needs very little water and light to live.

Tip: Can be used to soothe cuts, grazes, and bites

 3. ZZ Plant

Known as the "un-killable plant" with its dark green glossy leaves, this one is perfect for all of you plant serial killers out there. They thrive on low light, sporadic watering and even in fluorescent lighting!

Tip - wipe the leaves from time to time to keep the gloss

4. Bamboo

Bamboo works well in dark bathrooms especially as it needs little light to grow. It also doesn't need to be planted in soil, you could simply put the stalk in a pot with water and pebbles. 
Tip: Ensure you change the water every few weeks. 
5. Peace Lily

Another super low-maintenance plant to put in your bathroom and also one of the few that have flowers in low light conditions.  This one also works well on purifying the air so a great feel-good plant to have in your bathroom. 

Top tip - Use fluorescent light bulbs in your bathrooms if you have no natural sunlight as even the 'low light' plants need some light. These bulbs transmit wavelengths that the plants need.
