I have a very dark bathroom, which only gets filtered light through the car port roof ( The car port is enclosed on the other 2 sides by breeze block walls ) It also has etched windows ( complete with fly screens) which cuts out even more light. It is a rental property so I can not make alterations to the amount of light I get

I love ferns etc, but nothing will grow in my bathroom.

I have managed to save the maiden hair fern I originally tried in the bathroom. It is now in my computer room & gets a lot more filtered light than it did before. It is directly under the white corrugated plastic strips in the car port roof. It grows reasonably well ( on one side & it doesn’t matter how many times I rotate it is always just on one side.) But is always a very pale green & the fronds often turn brown around the edges. The Boston fern I also tried is now living very happily in my very sunny lounge, but everything else died.

Can you suggest a plant that will grow in my bathroom & also tell me what I am doing wrong with my maidenhair fern. It gets misted every couple of days through summer & gets regular feeds of Bio feed tea for Organics but it is still pale.

Thank you for your help.

Hi Eve, Make sure you don’t give your Maidenhair too much water which could be causing the leaves to brown off or a draught would cause the same problems. The only plant you could consider for the bathroom is a Aspidistra that will grow anywhere.

Thanks the Palmers Team
