Top Pet-Safe Houseplants

Indoor Cat Playing in a Spider PlantHouseplants can bring about natural beauty to any Aiea rental home. However, if you own pets, you should think of only having houseplants that are not poisonous. It may come as a shock to you, but some of the most common kinds of houseplants can be toxic for your pets.

If you’re trusting in 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 spur skin irritation, digestion problems, and 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. Being both trendy and safe for pets, succulents are one of the most in-demand houseplants. Succulents are easy to care for, and they also come in a vast range of colors and sizes.
  • Majesty Palm. You can make an incredible natural statement in any room of the house with these large potted palms. Lush and pet-safe, these palms require a little bit of maintenance, but what you get is worth the effort.
  • Boston Fern. Recently, this classic houseplant has made somewhat of a comeback. And best of all, it isn’t toxic for pets. You can put a Boston Fern in a hanging planter, on top of a cabinet, or a 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,” 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 called the “UFO Plant” for its saucer-shaped leaves, is another houseplant that is safe for pets. This cool-looking plant can add to the natural beauty of your house.
  • Red Maranta Prayer Plant. The leaves of the Red Maranta Prayer plant are so nice to look at. 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 flourish 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 also a good 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 special and popular plants. Soil is not crucial for these plants to grow. This makes them great for display in terrariums or hanging in creative arrangements. They will not hurt pets but do need to be watered correctly to live.
