Top Pet-Safe Houseplants

Indoor Cat Playing in a Spider PlantHouseplants can give natural beauty to any Montrose rental home. However, if you own pets, it’s really important to have houseplants that are not poisonous. This may take you by surprise, but some of the most common kinds of houseplants can be toxic for your pets.

And if you think that your pet would never even try to eat a plant, that’s not the only way a toxic houseplant can cause harm. Even rubbing against some plants can bring about skin irritation, digestion problems– how much more to your furry friend? Here are the top pet-safe houseplants to keep your pet safe while enjoying the pros trendy houseplants have to offer for your rental home.

  • Succulents. Being both trendy and safe for pets, succulents are one of the most sought-after houseplants. Succulents are not complicated to take care of, and they also come in a vast range of colors and sizes.
  • Majesty Palm. You can make an amazing natural statement in any room of the house with these large potted palms. Lush and pet-safe, these palms would need only a little bit of maintenance, but what you get is worth the effort.
  • Boston Fern. This classic houseplant has made somewhat of a comeback in recent years, and best of all, it isn’t toxic for pets. You can place a Boston Fern in a hanging planter on top of a cabinet or a bookshelf.
  • Money Tree. Despite its name, you can’t really grow money on a Money Tree. This houseplant is also known as the “good luck tree” and is well-liked among followers of feng shui for its shiny green leaves and unique braided trunk.
  • UFO Plant. The Pilea Peperomioides, often referred to as the “UFO Plant” for its saucer-shaped leaves, is another houseplant that is safe for pets. This particular plant can add natural beauty to any room of your house.
  • Red Maranta Prayer Plant. The leaves of the Red Maranta Prayer plant are so beautiful, they almost look like flowers. The Red Maranta Prayer plant has a one-of-a-kind herringbone pattern and hints of red. It will add some tropical beauty to your house without causing any harm to your pet.
  • Maidenhair Fern. The Maidenhair Fern, with its soft and feathery leaves, is a shade-loving plant that can live in areas without much sunlight. It is also non-toxic for pets, plus it looks fine in a pot or planter.
  • Spider Plant. The Spider Plant is always a favorite because it’s both easy to grow and safe for your pets to be around. Low-maintenance and attractive, the hanging leaves of the Spider Plant can add a shade of green to any area of your house.
  • Air Plant. The Air Plant is one of the more one-of-a-kind and trendy plants. Soil is not essential for these plants to grow. This makes them perfect for display in terrariums or hanging in creative arrangements. They will not hurt pets but do need to be watered correctly to thrive.

By selecting a trendy houseplant that is safe for your pets, you can certainly love the natural grandeur of your plants month after month.
