Top Pet-Safe Houseplants

Indoor Cat Playing in a Spider PlantHouseplants can provide natural beauty to any Foster City rental home. However, if you do own pets, it’s essential to purchase houseplants that are not poisonous. You may not know this, but a lot of the most common types 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 cause 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. Succulents are both trendy and safe for pets. They are also one of the most sought-after houseplants. Succulents are not that hard to take care of, and they also come in a vast range of colors and sizes.
  • Majesty Palm. You can make an extraordinary natural statement in any room of the house with these large potted palms. Lush and pet-safe, these palms only need some 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 fantastic in a hanging planter or on top of a cabinet or bookshelf.
  • Money Tree. Despite the name, money doesn’t really grow on a Money Tree. This houseplant is also known as the “good luck tree,” is well-loved among followers of feng shui for its bright green leaves and one-of-a-kind braided trunk.
  • UFO Plant. The Pilea Peperomioides is another houseplant that is safe for pets. This plant is often called 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 really catch your eye. 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. 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 nice 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 tinge of green to any area of your house.
  • Air Plant. The Air Plant is one of the more special and stylish plants. These plants don’t require soil to thrive. 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 delight in the natural grandeur of your plants month after month.
