When it comes to decorating the bathroom, many homeowners choose to display framed prints above the water closet or a captivating vignette on the counter featuring a tray filled with scented candles, jars of essentials, and a vase of blooms. If you're in the process of sprucing up this private space, you may want to highlight indoor plants that not only beautify your loo but help keep the air clean and safe, too.

To help you out, here are five plants that thrive in low light and high humidity areas you can consider:

Aloe Vera

You've probably heard about its amazing properties and nutrients that are often added in hair care products. If you're adding a pot in your bathroom, place it on the counter or by the window—but not necessarily under direct sunlight. Choose a white pot or planter so the leaves would stand out.

Suffered a cut or a burn? Slice a leaf open and apply the jelly-like extract on the affected area as instant remedy.

Orchids

Sporting a minimalist or modern bathroom in neutrals? Add a lovely pop of color by placing an orchid by the sink. Choose a hue that suits your taste—work with shades of purple and pink for a charming touch.

Be careful when watering your orchids—make sure the soil is dry in between watering. These plants also need an ample amount of indirect sunlight.

Bamboo

We all want to feel relaxed each time we step into the bathroom. To achieve a spa-like and calming ambiance, homeowners liven up the space with pebbles and smooth stones or even fill it with scented candles. In addition, you can opt for a Bamboo plant to add a Zen-like feel. It can occupy a corner of the room or if you have a bathtub—at the foot of this investment piece.

The good thing about bamboo is it can thrive in most light conditions; and if it grows in water, it's important that the roots are covered and that you change it every two to four weeks.

Cast Iron Plant

Trust the name—this plant is tough as iron! It's perfect for those who want to add plants at home, yet don't have the time to maintain them. Keep them healthy by letting the soil dry in-between watering. Display it by the window or place it on a shelf.

Spider Plant

Its leaves would remind you of lush landscapes and tropical getaways. There are different ways to showcase spider plants in the bathroom—you can add an extra side table by your counter or craftmacrame hanging planters to spruce up the available vertical space.

The Spider Plant thrives in medium light and is believed to rid the air of formaldehyde and carbon monoxide. Make sure you water it once or twice a week.

PRIMO.

First. Pixie dust and paper cuts – these are the first things Wendy knew about Peter Pan. Aurora first met Prince Philip when she was sixteen. Learning how to ride a bike was also a first while I was growing up, but you are probably the first of too many. The first collection of dust and stars; maybe Luna will try to ask, who was your first? I might answer and tell her that it was you.

The first of too many stars in the sky. You are the first of too many fallen leaves during fall – and you will be the most anticipated snowflake as winter comes. A dark path that you can’t see without any light, hence, you were once the moon and there are the stars that shine so bright at night. Are we too early? Or we just really want to be ahead of time? Even in a glimpse, I would like to see the two of us connect as if we can reach the sky. There are other parts of the heavens you have never saw and other oceans you haven’t laid your feet onto – but the constellations will always wait for you. Close your eyes, love, close your eyes. Start counting backward: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Count backward until you see the twinkling lights that will guide you to the right path. To the right satellite; to the right person. A first.

There are many firsts – first love, first heartbreak, first sport you played, the first thing you do in the morning, the first thing you remember about the person in front of you. There are a lot. It’s actually up to us how we will consider something as a first. So, Primo, you are already a first of too many.
