I have Arthurium Red in my bathroom. The lady said it was the sort of plant that liked bathrooms and dark places though mine is not especialy dark. For the moment it is on top of the toilet. On getting i fed it with food tablets and watered it when it needed But it seems to be shrivelling up.The leaves are drying out and have marks the same shape as the leaves about 4 mm in from the edge

Can i save it or is it finished.

What plant work well in bathroom? I believe ferns like the steamy atmosphere?

The Arthurium likes a constant temp. If you have a shower the temp heats up, them if you oped the windo w to let the steam out you get gusts of cold air especially at this time of year. I sugget you look out for an umbrella plant by the name of cyperus as it will take a bit more abuse.
