Interview on DRadio Wissen: Plants for Bathrooms

Which plants are suited for bathroom conditions? Which species are used in households? Do we have solutions for dark areas? PhD Student Bernd Wittstock (BMBF Project “ProKonZier””) answered many of these questions in an interview on DRadio Wissen on April 21. Impressions from an interdisciplinary study of households carried out over 12 months with Dorothee Dietrich, were presented in the radio program. Plants in the bathroom are always an interesting, but also sometimes difficult issue. The interview shows, however, that there are plants suitable for this particular location.
