If you happen to be both a cat lover and a plant lover, you have probably already figured out that the majority of plants are actually toxic to cats. Big bummer. I will just have to pass on all of those gorgeous fiddle leaf figs that everyone keeps talking about (although let’s face facts I would probably kill it anyway). So for years I’ve decided to stay away from indoor plants, both due to their poisonous tendencies and because obviously I’m lazy. After doing a thorough investigation of my house pinterest page, I realized how much of a difference plants make in a room. Well I did some research on whether there are any attractive plants that are not pure poison for our baby kitties. And there are! I’ve already picked up a fern and a little echeveria, and the extra bit of green has really been making me happy. Here are some other beauties that won’t harm your cats.
Maidenhair fern – This is a gorgeous plant but apparently really difficult to take care of. Emily Henderson swears by them (but also has to replace them several times a year).
Jasmine – I have got to get a little pot of jasmine growing. How delightful would that be? Smelling up my house with good smells and being all viney?
Blue Echeveria – The cutest little succulent. I picked one up from Home Depot for like $7.
Peppermint – I have wanted to make a mini herb garden for forever, and I think peppermint is a good place to start. Maybe in a lovely pot on my kitchen window sill. Unfortunately, not all herbs are cat friendly, so be careful about that.
Rabbit Foot Fern – Apparently most ferns are ok for cats, but not all? I picked up an “exotic” fern from Home Depot, but I’m not sure of its exact species.
Thank you thank you!!!! I’ve been wanting an indoor plant so bad, but have been too lazy to research what I can have in my house!
I love lil baby succulents!! Presh.
Happy Birthday and many more!!!
