Let’s talk about Indoor Plants. I will admit that I have had many a challenges with keeping them alive…from the Ficus Tree that I brought into the bathroom every time I took a shower so it can feel like it was in the Tropics…to the Countless Zebra Plants that I made Humidifying Tents to then watch them completely fall apart! I think I tried too hard. So I thought since I was given 2 black thumbs I would put together a fun…easy and very informative collection of Ways to Keep Your Indoor Plants Alive. There are 20 infographics that are extremely informative and beyond helpful. One of the most IMPORTANT sections are the ones that go over the Houseplants that are dangerous to our Pets…PLEASE use the information to make sure all is safe…it will mean so much to your doggie and kitties! Check all of these out before you go out to purchase the right indoor plants for your home and home decor. There is nothing like fresh greenery to brighten up a space…just make sure it is the right ones…plants that you can take care of…give enough light to and safe for the pets! Now turn those black thumbs GREEN!!!
The number one thing to know for a plant loving pet lover is to know what plants are good for your pet and what plants aren’t. You don’t just want to pick up a plant because it is beautiful and then run to the Emergency Room later that evening because your pup decided to munch on the leaves. So if you visit The American Humane Society, they have a COMPLETE list of plants that are harmful to your Dog and your Cat … These are MUST check lists for your Pet’s Safety.
We do have a few suggestions on some great Indoor Plants that your Kitty and Pup can live in harmony with.
Rubbery Plants, Boston Ferns, Areca Palms, Spider Plants, Staghorn Ferns, Maidenhair Ferns, Lemon Button Fern, Ponytail Palm and Prayer Plants. All of these would be wonderful and if you choose others…just make sure to check the Humane Societies list of Plants…it is so very important when you have pets.
