Bathroom set likes
Help them all grow big and strong by giving them a feed with liquid fertiliser once a month in spring and summer.
The steam of the bathroom will meet their humidity needs, so just water them if their soil ever feels dry.
Bertie and Rapunzel will be happy anywhere, including shady corners. Chris and Venus prefer a bit more light.
All these plants love steam but not really hot water, so best not to put them somewhere the shower will rain directly on them.

About this set
Most houseplants are originally from tropical forests, where the air is hot and really humid. Your bath or shower room feels pretty close to that, so these plants will love living there (as long as it has a window to let light in). Turn your bathroom into a green oasis.
This set without pots includes:
Rapunzel - Popularly known as the golden pothos, she has mottled leaves and thick, bushy growth. She doesn’t mind deep shade at all, but will grow even more quickly in brighter light.
Bertie - Popularly known as a Boston fern, Bertie is ideal for those darker rooms. He will be totally fine in shade. He adores steamy rooms, so he’ll thrive in a bathroom.
Chris - Known as the curly spider plant, because of his long, leggy leaves, Chris has been a well-loved houseplant for decades. He’s really easygoing. He’ll love the humidity in your bathroom, though don’t put him too close to the shower, as he doesn’t enjoy being waterlogged.
Venus - With her high demands for humidity, Venus the maidenhair fern can usually be a bit challenging to look after. But if you put her in the bathroom she’s super easy. She’ll love the steamy atmosphere, which will help her delicate leaves thrive.
The set with pots also includes:
Clay pot - Clean lines and hard-wearing materials make this an indoor plant pot built to last.
Dipped pot - Warm colours and contrasting textures make these hand-finished pots real eye-catchers.
