Start a Garden in Your Bathroom

Make a gorgeous shower caddy garden with help from Steve Asbell, author of Plant By Numbers, using little more than an orchid, wire shower caddy, bath sponge and air plants.

Step One: Cut the Loofah

Use scissors to cut the bath sponge where it bunches together and unravel the material.

Step Two: Line the Caddy

Line the shower caddy with the bath sponge.

Step Three: Wrap the Orchid Roots

Wrap the bath sponge material around the roots of the orchid.

Step Four: Secure the Orchid

Place the orchid in the caddy and use a twist tie to secure the stem.

Step Five: Add Air Plants and Hang

Add other air plants, fill in with orchid bark, give it a good drink of water and attach it to the wall.

Enjoy

Shower caddy gardens look—and smell!—a lot better than decorating with shampoo bottles and soap.
