Don't scrap an indoor nature collection for the sake of Whiskers. You can have both healthy felines & green decor, as long as you make sure your plant babies won't poison your cat babies.
Before you make a trip to the nursery, browse our list of cat-friendly plants that are safe for your furry friend (and excellent additions to your home decor).
1. PONYTAIL PALM
These playful plants are air purifiers. They prefer lower light, so they're ideal for rooms that need life but have little sunlight to give.
2. Air plants
If you don't have air plants yet, you're missing out. They look delicate but are easy to take care of-just soak them in water every week or two.
3. CALATHEA PRAYER PLANT
Why not update your bathroom decor? They love humidity, so plop one next to your shower or tub to really make them feel at home.
4. Rattlesnake Plant
The Calathea family is all about texture and vibrancy. The rattlesnake plant's crinkly leaves make it a unique addition to your indoor garden.
5. Calathea peacock
Calathea plants check all of the necessary boxes: non-toxic to cats, air-purifying, unique look and feel. This just may be our new favorite plant.
Hibiscus rosa-sinensis, Hibiscus syriacus
