    Default Plant for bathroom?

    I need some suggestions on good indoor plants for the bathroom please! They need to be quite tall - around 1.2m-1.5m high and quite tough. I've tried several types of palms and they just end up dying (Guessing they don't get enough light??).

    I saw some nice artificial plants in tall pots at Target recently. I have no idea about real plants indoors, I have enough trouble with plants outside!

    Really the only thing that will survive is small ferns as they are ok in low light. You'll find that most large plants need some light to survive. My exH has a degree in horticulture and that's what he used to say. If you go to a nursery you need to go to their indoor section and see what they have, the staff should be able to advise.

    Thanks for the replies everyone I'm really not keen on artificial plants. The palms are lasting 6-12 months, so maybe I just need to keep replacing them. The biggest issue I have is finding plants tall enough.

    Have you tried parlour palms? I've had one for yrs and its done well.

    Being in the bathroom, don't water them too much as they get enough from the moisture in the air. You'll end up with root rot.
