Bekkie, Apparently the plants used in bathrooms are ,(I cant spell Chlorophytum Comos ) so its a Spider plant,loves the steamy atmosphere now and again, trouble is in the bathroom they grow very fast ,I know i put small ones in to give em a good start and it works ,they grow very healthy,Our  Peace Lillies love the Bathroom as well and will grow with little light as some bathrooms are a little dim ,they do very well in there and love the steam ,Philodendron ,iv not tried but they are recommended Boston Fern,Cast Iron plant and Bamboo ,Parlor Palm to name a few,I also put plants into our bathroom that like to be sprayed /Misted, Even Fig cuttings do very well in there ,the Spider,Peace lilly, Palm and fern iv tried and they love it,  No our bath room is not Full of plants we have 2 at a time,Kate likes the atmosphere they create and so does  I Wheres my shower Cap

I noticed the fat balls being sold  in those plastic string bags again,surly by now the suppliers / makers  know the birds get there feet caught in them its happened to us last year luckily it got out as i was trying to help,. hope im not going over the top but can we just agree NOT to buy the ones in these plastic death traps, they can still be bought in other bags and bigger drums, perhaps our editor could get a mention by Monty on TV. any comments could help ,anyone know how to get hold of our editor ,Help please. ps i made some up last year from lard and bits ,the birds ate ours first every time
