The Best Indoor Plants for your Bathroom (Easy To Take Care)

Looking for a plant to add to your bathroom aesthetics? Well, some plants help you more than giving colour and calm vibes to your bathroom. Plants are natural air purifiers. Excrement and household cleaning essentials such as laundry detergents and disinfectant sprays release volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Plants can help to remove these harmful contaminants that linger in the air. If you’re wondering if an air purifier is superior to the natural air purification by houseplants, the answer is both are on par with each other. The natural air purifying plants are not inferior to the mechanical air purifiers.

Here are our 3 best indoor plants that remove toxins in the air and are really easy to take care of:

Snake plant
Also known as Mother-in-law’s Tongue. It is a succulent plant that can grow up to 2 meters. The snake plant is hands-down the best plant for your bathroom. It thrives on little light and very little water. Do not overwater them as they live naturally in dry environments. Prefect if you’re completely new to plants and if you’re forgetful to water them sometimes. It effectively removes benzene, formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, xylene and toluene toxins in the air and provides oxygen. Its long list of benefits makes it top on our list.Snake plant | Kiwicorp New Zealand Spider plant
