Shower Plants Are Going to Transform Your Bathroom

This Pinterest-perfect trend does more than keep your bathroom Insta-ready—shower plants really make a difference.



This Pinterest-perfect trend does more than keep your bathroom Insta-ready. 
 
Shower plants are everywhere right now—Pinterest searches for the topic are up by 302% —but it's not for the reason you'd think. While a claw foot tub surrounded by cascades of ivy and lush aloe is downright Insta-worthy, plants also offer a natural defense against bacteria and the harsh chemicals found in traditional cleaning products.

[post_ads]Through the process of photosynthesis, simple household plants can remove harsh chemicals such as benzene, formaldehyde and trichloroethylene from the air in your home. They can also help keep indoor air pollution in check, while upping the ante on your bathroom's decor. Another bonus? The humid environment means you'll never have to worry about forgetting to water your plants again.
With their low light and high humidity, bathrooms are well-suited for tropical plants that boast pollution-fighting capabilities. Below, we've highlighted six of the best plants to add to your bathroom RN.

Peace Lilies


With their lush green leaves and bright white blooms, peace lilies exude serenity but are powerhouses when it comes to tackling the problem of indoor air pollution. They're also low-maintenance, making them a perfect pick for black thumbs. The leaves are toxic to pets, so make sure to keep them out of their reach.

Aloe Vera


Beyond the healing properties of its gel, this iconic succulent acts as an air quality indicator. If the leaves start to exhibit brown spots, it's a sign that the level of chemicals and pollutants in the air is high. Aloe plants like indirect light and only need to be watered sparingly.

Boston Fern


Though it requires more maintenance than aloe vera or peace lilies, Boston ferns are one of the most effective plants at removing pollutants such as formaldehyde from the air. It also acts as a natural humidifier, which can be beneficial during the winter months when the air is dry. Mist regularly to maintain moisture and place in a spot with moderate, indirect light.

English Ivy


This elegant climber can help keep your bathroom clean and more hygienic by removing mold and fecal matter from the air—now if only it did floors…

Spider Plant


Spider plants are almost impossible to kill, which makes them a particularly good pick for people with jam-packed agendas (or bad track record with plant care). In addition to kicking harsh chemicals to the curb, it can also help clear a room of carbon monoxide.

Snake Plant

Houzz

This hardy workhorse is about as fuss-free as they come. They can survive in both full sun or shade and only needs to be watered when the soil is completely dry. In addition to removing fumes and chemicals from the air, snake plants will help keep your bathroom smelling fresh in a totally natural way thanks to its odor-removing capabilities.
