1. Bamboo - Bamboo is a low maintenance plant to begin with, and it needs very little light to survive. I keep mine in a vase of water and it has thrived for years. Check out more ways to display bamboo in your bathroom here.

5. Snake Plant - The snake plant is sometimes referred to as Mother-In-Law's Tongue, and it is another plant which is difficult to kill. It doesn't need a ton of sunlight and prefers to be pot-bound. Check out lots more info at  Homedit.

7. Orchid - Orchids enjoy sunlight, but it should be indirect. And they only need about a quarter of a cup of water every week or so. Once the blooms wither, cut them off and continue watering as usual... it should bloom again next year (or sooner for certain varieties). For lots more ideas, check out Decoist.

8. Aloe Vera - Aloe is a wonderful plant for the bathroom thanks in part to its medicinal qualities. Cut off a small leaf and rub the gel on a sunburn for instant relief. And the plant itself will thrive in a sunny, moist area. For additional ideas, check out PopSugar.
