Good topic. But… I have a very green thumb. I have tried maidenhair fern three times, in the bathroom (because I know they love humidity) and each time had to give up. I tried so many times, because it is such a beautiful, lacy plant. BUT it certainly is not an easy plant to grow indoors! Most people will get very frustrated if they try to grow this plant indoors.

Well my orchids have finally finished blooming, so I was trying to work out what I could put in their place whilst they are resting in another area. I have decided to simply leave my driftwood/airplant display alone in the main bathroom but then there is the en suite and a small shelf in the toilet.

So whilst in Bunnings the other day, I walked past the pond plants and instantly I thought, what better plants in the bathroom but plants that literally live in water and I wanted something very small and found this pretty little plant called Lysimachia which is a marginal plant. It is a pretty light green and in the warmer months, it has
masses of bright yellow flowers and as I have it sitting at height, it
will naturally weep down towards the floor, so it could end up being
spectacular, mind you it might not flower indoors but for under $10 and I
split it in two, it was a no brainer to give it a go.

I put both plants into a 10cm pot, a black one for the toilet together with black stone mulch and did a white version for the en suite with white stone and simply filled the little pots with water, I'm so interested to see how they go!!
