The most beautiful (and safest!) houseplants to have if you own pets.
Just ask any pet-owner about their experience with having plants in their home and they will have a horror story, guaranteed.
"I once spent $100 on a beautiful fiddle leaf fig for my house. I came home one day and caught my cat climbing up it, bear-style. She had pulled off all the leaves and taken bites out of each one. That poor tree never stood a chance!" -Amanda
While some pets just can't resist exploring houseplants, you can at least mitigate your stress by choosing a plant that's resilient, inexpensive, and safe for pets to chew on (just in case). Check out our picks below.
Bamboo is a hearty plant that's easy to grow and completely safe for your pets to be around (and eat).
This bright, non-toxic, air-purifying plant is a beautiful addition to any pet-filled home. It's pretty low maintenance too!
The Boston Fern is a lush houseplant that is safe around both dogs and cats. They love humidity so toss one (or a few!) in your bathroom to turn your loo into a tropical oasis.
Not only are areca palms safe around pets, they help purify your home by removing benzene, formaldehyde and trichloroethylene from the air. Thanks plant!
