Top Pet-Safe Houseplants

Indoor Cat Playing in a Spider PlantHouseplants can contribute natural beauty to any Summerville rental home. However, if you do own pets, it’s essential to select 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.

If you’re counting on the fact that your pet would never try to eat a plant, eating a toxic houseplant is not the only way these plants can cause harm to your pets. Even rubbing against some plants can bring out skin irritation, digestion problems, even more to your furry friend. Here are the top pet-safe houseplants to keep your pet safe while you get to enjoy the pros nice houseplants have to offer for your rental home.

  • Succulents. Succulents are both trendy and safe for pets. No wonder why they 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 a bold 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. A Boston Fern looks cool in a hanging planter or on top of a cabinet or 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,” is desired among followers of feng shui for its smooth green leaves and one-of-a-kind 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 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 thrive in areas without much sunlight. It is also non-toxic for pets, plus it looks pretty in a pot or planter.
  • Spider Plant. The Spider Plant is also a good choice 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 hint of green to any area of your house.
  • Air Plant. The Air Plant is one of the more special 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 damage pets but do need to be watered correctly to grow.

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