    Pothos is easy and doesn't require much light

    really depends on your light source even low level light requirement plants still need some light at least 6 hrs a day. and you will water them less because humidity would be higher. Good drainage & drying in between watering is always best #1 killer of house plants over watering and #2 transplanting/disturbing root systyems too much. So any shade plants for lowest level bathrooms like ferns work well but are messy as they shed leaves from the fronds always,all green pothos,grape ivy,swedish ivy,orchids,bromeliads,air plants,all green spider plants,philodendrons; However none of these plants will actually bloom without the sun----these as all plants still need light the darker the green the leaves are the less light they need any plant with variegation yellow,white, red, orange or lighter shades of green in the leaves need much more light even sun to do best. Air plants do well in actual shower https://www.google.com/search?q=tillandias&rlz=1C1CHBF_enUS750US750&oq=tillandias&aqs=chrome..69i57j0l5.7471j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8 you can always use a grow light to provide some much needed full spectrum lighting if you have no windows in your bathroom you can set it up on timer so they get what they need to stay healthy....or use a rotatation system-- having doubles keeping one set in well lit area elsewhere then moving to bathroom then switch every 2-3 wks. many commercial businesses do this with plants in offices. so the plants are always healthy.

      hang a bunch of little ones all different colors from fishing line to cover a portion of shower wall different lengths to look like a air plant water fall; or around the edge of skylight at different heights/lengths cascading down you can buy them online in bunches (Ebay) also add them onto pieces of driftwood for nice look

    You need light during the day to make plants grow so if you have a window a good hanging vine would do nicely.
