We have a bathtub in the corner of our bathroom, and I mounted a
corner shelf about 6' up.
The room gets only indirect light (the plant will be located in the
SE corner of the room). I want something that will hang down.

Probably true in the dank bath houses you frequent, but not in most
Acts of creation are ordinarily reserved for gods and poets. To plant a pine,
one need only own a shovel.

Surely this depends on the bathroom! i have flowered orchids in
bathrooms, and ordinarilly grew maidenhair ferns in them. I have one
bathroom which is HUGE and has two picture windows, (I have no idea
why) and i grow just about anything on the shelves i have built for
the purpose. This is in a dry climate, no ferns here.
In NY i had a windowless bathroom, not unusual, and under a
fluorescent light on the counter, i had a nice selection of African
Violets and some leathery ferns.
one good thing about bathrooms is you do not have to worry about
splashing water, you can grow a hanging basket over the tub or in the
I have a problem with that type of thinking.
It's a bit like saying "don't paint it because you'll only have
to do it again in a couple of years".
Spend a few bucks on a nice fern (maybe Asparagus sprengerii?).
It will certainly live for
6-12 months and may do surprisingly well. If not, chuck it out
and get a new one.
Think of the plant as a disposable decoration - if it costs $5
for six months and then you have
to spend another $5, it's cheaper than wallpaper - or artificial
light as someone else suggested.
Why do folks spend a couple of bucks on a plant and then expect
it to last longer than wallpaper?
Buy it, enjoy it, replace it - it's the cheapest decoration

If you can afford to run a compact flourescent lamp of about 20 watts
power consumption your choices widen greatly. Lately the power
companies have been subsidizing the bulbs and they have gotten cheap
some places only 1$.
You sure have a lot of room to talk.
You bothered to read the posting and even had the time to reply.
If it bothers you so much, you should not have either read it or even
replied to show your ignorance.
Just go back to sleep and you will be alright, Rip Van Fecal. If you shit in
the same room where you live, we don't want to know about it.
