Top Pet-Safe Houseplants

Indoor Cat Playing in a Spider PlantHouseplants can give natural beauty to any Beacon Hill rental home. However, if you do own pets, it’s essential to buy 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.

And if you’re riding on the fact that your pet would never try to eat a plant, that’s not the only way a toxic houseplant can bring harm. Even rubbing against some plants can bring about skin irritation, digestion problems, and more to your furry companion. Here are the top pet-safe houseplants to keep your pet safe while you get to enjoy 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 easy to care for, 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 require a little bit of maintenance, but what you get 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. 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 actually 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. Another houseplant safe for pets that is visually pleasing is the Pilea Peperomioides. This plant is often referred to as the “UFO Plant” for its saucer-shaped leaves. 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 attractive, they almost look like flowers. The Red Maranta Prayer plant has a distinctive herringbone pattern and hints of red. It will add a bit of tropical beauty to your house without bringing about any harm to your pet.
  • Maidenhair Fern. With its soft, feathery leaves, the Maidenhair Fern is a shade-loving plant that can grow in areas without much sunlight. It is also non-toxic for pets, plus it looks nice in a pot or planter.
  • Spider Plant. The Spider Plant is also a top contender because it’s both easy to grow and safe for your pets to be around. Low-maintenance and attractive, the leaves that suspend from 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 unique and trendy 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 damage pets but do need to be watered correctly to thrive.

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