Top Pet-Safe Houseplants

Indoor Cat Playing in a Spider PlantHouseplants can give natural beauty to any Washington Corridor rental home. But on the flip side, if you have pets, it’s vital to select houseplants that are not poisonous. It may amaze you to perceive that several of the most famous sorts of houseplants can be toxic for your pets.

And if you believe your pet would absolutely not try to eat a plant, that’s not the only way a toxic houseplant can cause harm. Even rubbing against some plants can result in skin irritation, digestion problems, and much more in your furry friend. To keep your pet safe while appreciating the many uses that known houseplants have to give, here are the top pet-safe houseplants for your rental home.

  • Succulents. One of the most well-known houseplants, succulents are both trendy and safe for pets. Succulents come in a wide variety of colors and sizes and are fairly effortless to attend to.
  • Majesty Palm. These large potted palms create a gorgeous inherent statement in any room of the house. Lush and pet-safe, these palms require some maintenance, but certainly, the effect is completely worth the effort.
  • Boston Fern. This classic houseplant has made something of a comeback in the past few years, and above all, it isn’t toxic for pets. A Boston Fern looks amazing in a hanging planter or right up on a cabinet or bookshelf.
  • Money Tree. Irrespective of the name, you can’t truly grow money on a Money Tree. Although this houseplant is also called a “good luck tree,” it’s definitely a favorite among supporters of feng shui for its glossy green leaves and unique braided trunk.
  • UFO Plant. Another visibly lovely houseplant safe for pets is the Pilea Peperomioides, frequently called the “UFO Plant” for its saucer-shaped leaves. This extraordinary plant can add natural charm to any room in your home.
  • Red Maranta Prayer Plant. The leaves of the Red Maranta Prayer plant are so delightful, they practically seem to be flowers. With a rare herringbone pattern and hints of red, the Red Maranta Prayer plant will add a somewhat tropical beauty to your home without producing any harm to your pet.
  • Maidenhair Fern. With its soft, feathery leaves, the Maidenhair Fern is a shade-loving plant that can grow in rooms that don’t receive much sunlight. It’s equally non-toxic for pets and looks fine in a pot or planter.
  • Spider Plant. Definitely a favorite, the Spider Plant is both worry-free to grow and safe for your pets to be around. Low-maintenance and attractive, the drooping leaves of the Spider Plant can add a shade of green to any part of your home.
  • Air Plant. One unique plant is the Air Plant. These plants don’t need soil to develop and so are suitable for display in terrariums or hanging in creative arrangements. They won’t harm pets, however, they must be watered correctly to grow.

By picking a trendy houseplant that is also safe for your pets, you can safely enjoy the genuine beauty of your plants month after month.
