To take advantage of all the beauty (and health benefits!) that plants have to offer, a growing number of homeowners are adding them to an often overlooked area in the home—the shower. In fact, searches for "shower plants" have increased by more than 302 percent in the last year, according to Pinterest's 2017 home report..

Storing plants in your shower actually has a surprising number of advantages. In addition to improving the air quality in your bathroom, they also absorb excess moisture, eliminate bacteria, and can instantly transform the room into a calming, spa-like space.

"Plants have been shown to boost moods, increase creativity, filter indoor air toxins, and produce oxygen—all are great reasons to invest in some houseplants," Erin Marino, founder of The Sill, told Into the Gloss. "Luckily, there are a number of common species that thrive in the typically tropical conditions a bathroom provides." In fact, many tricky-to-grow tropical plants, like orchids, thrive when placed in a humid bathroom.


[post_ads]But before you go hanging plants in or near your shower, you'll want to consider the amount of sunlight your bathroom receives. Homeowners with bathrooms that receive low levels of natural light should opt for plants like bamboo, aloe vera, heart-leafed philodendrons, orchids, spider plants, or Boston ferns, according to Apartment Therapy. For bathrooms with big windows and access to sunshine, try air plants, gardenias, azaleas, or asparagus ferns.


There are also plenty of pretty display options to consider. You can place your plants in hanging baskets and suspend them from your shower rod, position them in pots next to your tub, arrange them on shower shelves, place them on a windowsill, or even plant them in a shower caddy. (And hey, with a water source right there, you'll never forget to water your greenery again!)
