Rules of placement and care
Despite the fact that the plants that will be in the bathroom are selected taking into account the preference of abundant moisture and shade, additional conditions should be considered for their growth and placement. Often in the bathroom temperature drops occur, which in turn leads to the appearance of mold and the multiplication of pathogenic fungi. You can avoid this by airing the room, leaving the door open at night.
In bathrooms, where there is not even a small window, you should think about installing additional fluorescent lamps. If there is no such possibility, then at least for a few hours you take out the pots with flowers on the balcony or windowsill.
With regard to watering, then with high humidity in the room to water, the plants should be only when the top layer of soil in the pot begins to dry out. To ensure the normal breathing of plants, wipe their leaves as often as possible from drops of soapy water and toothpaste.
It should be well thought out how and where to place a flower correctly:
- Hanging plants will look spectacular on the shelves above the mirror.
- In the bathroom with a large area, you can arrange flowers in tubs at the corners, and on special curbstones, lush bushes will look good.
- To add romance to the flower pots, you can put on the wide sides of the bath, arrange candles nearby. But to make the evening intimate, of course, will help the bath with flowers.
