9 Best Plants for Bathrooms Without Windows

No plant can survive in complete darkness, but even in a windowless bathroom, there’s always artificial light.

And all plants need, besides light, is water, which is abundant in a bathroom. Light plus water equals thriving plants!

Let’s explore the best plants for bathrooms without windows. So you can still bring the outdoors in (with plants) even if your bath has no windows.

Peace Lily

My favorite houseplant is the beautifully named Peace lily or Spathiphyllum. The white flower symbolizes tranquillity and harmony, like the white flag of peace.


Ferns love the high humidity, moist soil, and low-light conditions of tropical regions in Asia and South America – and your windowless bathroom.

Boston Fern

The Boston fern (Nephrolepis exaltata), these magnificent ferns are covered in bushy green fronds and give your bathroom a forest flavor.

Bird’s Nest Fern

Another charming fern for your windowless bathroom is the Bird’s nest fern. These ferns have beautiful crinkly leaves and thrive in humidity.

Blue Star Fern

The Blue Star fern (Phlebodium aureum) is uniquely named and appropriate for this unusual plant. The wavy foliage of these ferns has a blue-gray tinge.
