What you do when you’re a plant lady but decided to get a kitten?
Even though Olivia didn’t pay much attention to my indoor plants during her first weeks at home, nowadays she’s a curious little bastard and I’ll soon have to buy her own little plants too, so she can leave mine in peace.
I knew that a lot of common indoor plants are poisonous for cats before I got Olivia, so I did a lot of research to make sure the ones I have at home and the ones I will buy in the future aren’t toxic.
So here’s a list of common pet friendly house plants that you can grow:
1. Spider plant – These are easy to care for, grow well in low-light conditions and can help to clean the air in our homes.
2. Palms – Areca, bamboo palm, parlor and ponytail are some of the most common indoor palm plants, and they are all pretty easy to grow too.
3. Boston fern – Both beautiful and safe for cats and dogs!h for each specific variety of succulent plant you grow.
4. Cast iron plant – It’s one of toughest house plants out there.
5. Bromeliads – Colorful, pet safe indoor plants that grow well without much light.
6. Christmas cactus – Easy to grow indoor plants that will flower right around Christmas time.
7. Phalaenopsis orchids – Not only are phalaenopsis orchids cat and dog safe indoor plants, they are popular edible flowers too.
8. Swedish ivy – Swedish ivy plants are great for growing indoors, and are also safe for pets!
9. Bromeliad – Bromeliads are safe, easy to grow, unique, and they make great indoor plants.
