“I have a small window in my bathroom and am dying to get some plants in there. What’s a good bathroom plant that can survive where I take my steamy showers?” —Brenda, Delray Beach

If you’ve already used up every sill and ledge in your home and you’re looking to spread the plant love around, the bathroom should be your next spot.

While not all plants are suited for high humidity levels, there is an assortment that will thrive in these conditions. If you love unwinding with a steamy shower, the Xerographica is for you.

Air Plants have a reputation of being easy to take care of, and this oversized option is no exception. With its diameter being about 5”, this rosette-shaped addition will certainly become the coolest showstopper amongst your bathing must-haves.

The Xerographica likes bright indirect light to full sun, so if you have a window this should be good to go. Mist this daily and let is soak in warm water for about 15 minutes once a week to make sure it stays extra happy.
