Can our pets and plants live together?
Plant lovers with curious cats and dogs, I would like to tell you a little about which plants are toxic and which plants you can easily keep in your home in this week's blog post. First of all, I would like to state that I have gained my knowledge from the researches I have done, the books I have read and my own experiences as I am a mother of 2 cats and 2 dogs.
If we need to list the toxic indoor plants, the most popular plant of recent times is the Butterfly (Monstera). Afterwards, the peace flower (spathiphyllum), sword plant, Pothos species, yucca and Difenbahya plant that we all know are among the toxic species. Aloe spp., Dracaena spp. and the Croton plant are unfortunately among the toxic plants. However, if you place these plants in such a way that your pets will not be attracted to them, or if you spend time with them and the plants at the same time and get used to them, you should not have any problems. The photo you see below consists of me, my cat and plants in our office, almost all of which are considered toxic. Together, a peaceful and healthy environment can be established.
So what are non-toxic plants?
Of course, there are many types available that will provide a safe environment in your non-toxic home. Among the non-toxic plants are Spider Plant, Violet, Zebra succulent (Haworthia), Wax flower species (Hoya), Begonias and love ladder. At the same time, you can easily look at Maranta and other prayer flower species, Hypoestes (Polka dot) plant. Air plants are also among the non-toxic plants.
As a final suggestion, especially those who have cats, if your cats like to bite and eat, you can take valerian to keep them off your plants and maintain their health. If you are just starting to look after plants and want to secure your business, the most logical choice would be succulents and cacti. See you until our next blog post...
