Top Pet-Safe Houseplants

Indoor Cat Playing in a Spider PlantHouseplants can give natural beauty to any Brightwood rental home. However, if you own pets, it’s really important to have houseplants that are not poisonous. You may not know this, 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 so that your pet would be safe while you enjoy the benefits trendy houseplants have to offer for your rental home.

  • Succulents. Being both trendy and safe for pets, succulents are one of the most in-demand houseplants. Succulents are not that complicated to care for, and they also come in a wide 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 need only a little bit of maintenance, but the outcome is worth the effort.
  • Boston Fern. In recent years, this classic houseplant has made somewhat of a comeback. And best of all, it isn’t toxic for pets. A Boston Fern looks best in a hanging planter or on top of a cabinet or bookshelf.
  • Money Tree. Despite its name, you can’t actually grow money on a Money Tree. This houseplant is also known as the “good luck tree” and is desired among followers of feng shui for its smooth green leaves and unique braided trunk.
  • UFO Plant. The Pilea Peperomioides, often called 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 really catch your eye. They almost look like flowers. The Red Maranta Prayer plant has a cool herringbone pattern and flecks of red. It will surely add a bit of tropical beauty to your house without bringing about 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 good in a pot or planter.
  • Spider Plant. The Spider Plant is always an ideal choice because it’s both easy to grow and safe for your pets to be around. Low-maintenance and attractive, the draping leaves of the Spider Plant can add a hint 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. These plants don’t require soil 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.
