The perfect bathroom plant: Eucharis grandiflora
« on: March 29, 2009, 01:47:35 AM »
Dear all,

now that spring is almost here for us Northerners, my bathroom plant is blooming again. She is getting larger and gets repotted every year. I have kept her in the bathroom since she was very young - she likes high humidity and is best in semi-shade (native to Brazil).
The leaves are always a pleasure to look at - a dark, shiny green, and she is a wonderful companion for my Clivias.
Her flowers are nicely scented.
I think there should be a little space for this plant in every bathroom  :)







Enjoy!
Best,

Joyce.

Thanks Joyce, Very lovely.
Will look out for these - we have the high humidity here (similar climate to parts of Brazil), so it could grow well here.
Best Regards,

Mel.

Lovely plant.  :clap:  :clap:

Love the way the flowers bend down so when you lie in the bath you can look up at them.  :woohoo:

Really lovely Joyce!!  Pot plants just don't like my house for some reason. When I moved into the house in 1994, I moved in with some 75 pot/house plants - I don't have one left!!
