I have a bathroon with one window facing the west and I don't have a clue what type of plant would be suited best. So far, I have a a golden potho on the shelve, but are there any ideas out there? thank you.

mrs.b, you have so many options. a peace lily, a fern, a draceana (there are several types out there), and on and on and on. any plant you are partial to, just check to make sure it will take the humidity of a bathroom (bromiliads are good, cactus is bad [Big Grin] ) it all depends on how much space you have and how much fooling you want to do with it.

other than that, that is an ideal spot for your plants.

Ferns you say? I have never had any luck with them period. Always end up killing them. I was going to attempt to put a Lipstick plant in then remember that they like my golfish plant, need that south sun right?

A lipstick plant might do okay in a west facing window. They need bright indirect light with a couple hours of direct sunlight. Too hot a window and lipsticks crispy fry. (Been there, done that. [lala] )

does the room get lots of light or just a little?

Hi All,
It greats average light (you know what you would expect from a west facing window) However in my case I have over hanging awnings on the house sou that blocks some sun.
I would say it is of average light.
I purchased a small lily(?) one I could set on a shelve and will use it as a trial plant.

what kind of lily? peace lily? (spath...) or something else. an african violet does well in bathrooms too, and they like the west windows very well.

you could also get an orchid - i wouldn't put it on the windowsill to the side would be good, tho.

wandering jew should do well also.
