Which plants are safe for pets?

This is a question we get asked often times.

Surprisingly, many plants can be very harmful to pets and animals if ingested, causing some quite severe health problems for them. This is mainly due to the presence of calcium oxalates, which if ingested can cause vomiting, lethargy, digestive problems, and apparently poor coordination.

Here are some of the common plants which are harmful: Snake Plants, Monsteras, and Aloe Vera.

Here at Planteka, we have a special place for animals in our hearts so we have taken some time to create a list of pet-friendly plants which adds some leafy plant beauty to your space. These are some of my favouritesโ€ฆ Calathea Orbifolia, Macodes Petola, and Pilea Mollis.

Take a look at the full list here..

Plant (and pet) love, Planteka.
