Choosing plants for your bathroom
Decorative houseplants are the latest design trend; aesthetically pleasing, these little wonders also improve air quality and reduce mold as they soak up moisture in your bathroom.

Ferns hardly need any watering at all; in fact the moisture in the air from daily showers should be enough to keep your fern thriving for years to come. They don’t rely on direct sunshine in order to flourish, meaning that even in a dark bathroom you can still add a touch of greenery without needing sunshine to help them thrive.
