a friend is remodeling her bathroom and said she wanted to put a small plant in there. what would stay alive in a humid room it has 1 east facing window but a few feet over from where the plant would have to be so it wouldn't get "direct" sun. any ideas?

The humidity levels in bathrooms are vastly overrated. The humidity from a running shower dissipates rather soon after the door is opened.

Try a Pothos or a Chinese evergreen. Both are readily available in small sizes, relatively inexpensive, and do well in lower light.

My spider plant grows like crazy and it get very little light. I imagine if she wanted a structural plant a Sansevieria, what we call mother-in-law plant it seems to grow anywhere. Ivy, they have beautiful varigated ivy.

depends on the look she wants- draping vines or tall and thin or bushy...pretty much any plant would like that kind of spot, semi-sun and some humidity- every plants dream!

I had my avocado right in the shower with me and all three pits sprounted. That was an east window. I just took them outside to harden off. Next week they will finally get their new home. Hopefully they survive the foot traffic until they get big.
