Foster a Harmonious Living Space with Pets and Plants:

Tips for a Happy, Coexistent Home

Learn the best practices for creating a harmonious home environment where both pets and plants can thrive.

Selecting Pet-Safe Houseplants for Your Home

Research before Purchasing

• Before introducing new houseplants to your living space, conduct thorough research to ensure they are non-toxic to your pets.  The ASPCA provides a comprehensive list of toxic and non-toxic plants, making it an excellent resource for pet owners.

Favor the  Safest Options

• Options for pet-safe houseplants like spider plants, Boston ferns, or areca palms.  These plants not only pose minimal risk to your pets, but they also offer air-purifying benefits and contribute to a calming environment.

Be Aware  of Allergens

• Pets can also suffer from allergies, so ensure that any plants you choose will not contribute to allergens in the home.  For example, plants with heavy pollen production can exacerbate symptoms in sensitive individuals, including your pets.

Creating Safe Spaces for Pets and Plants

Establish  Boundaries

• Designate separate areas within your home for your pets and plants.  This can help reduce the chances of accidental ingestion of plants or pets damaging delicate foliage.
