Can they be grown near indoor slimming pools with high humidity and low light levels all year round?

On plant Alocasia



Indoor low light levels aren't really very good for plants even those that like part shade as they will tend to grow leggy, lean towards the lights esp. if stuck in a corner and probably go off colour.

Humidity is good esp for these types of plants but im not sure how the chlorine in the air humidity will affect them.
To much humidity in a warm environment where the plant is already weakend by lack of light would incourage pest e.g two/red spotted mite that love these conditions. Possibly even mildew.

I dont know any plants that would like hot humid low light chlorine atmospheres! Any one know of any?
