10 of the Best Pet Friendly Indoor Plants

Pets and plants. Two things that bring ultimate happiness. But if Fido has a penchant for nibbling your fiddle leaf fig, it may not be such good times, since some indoor plants can be toxic to our furry friends.

And while you can elevate your plant pals out of reach of your curious companions (plant stands, hanging pots and plant shelves all make great solutions), there's an array of pet friendly indoor plants to put your mind at ease.

Keep your pets safe with our top easy-care, pet friendly indoor plant picks:


1. Parlour Palm

While some palms can be toxic to pets, the Parlour Palm is not only pet safe, but one of the easiest indoor plants to care for. This lush lady thrives in bright, indirect light, but can tolerate shadier spots too.

2. Peacock Plant

If you're a leaf lover, this gal's for you! Calathea's are known to be a little fussy, so plenty of bright indirect light is a must, and consistent watering is key. As well as being non-toxic, the Peacock Plant also purifies the air.

3. Hoya Carnosa Krimson Queen

Best known for her waxy leaves, pinky-white variegation and star shaped clusters of scented flowers, the Hoya Carnosa Krimson Queen is also classified as non-toxic. And thanks to her clever water storing leaves, she doesn't need to be watered as often as some other houseplants.

4. Spider Plant

Air purifying, pet safe and easy to care for, the Spider Plant (or Ribbon Plant) is one of the best Fronds around. This unique beauty has long cascading leaves that produce little "pups" - perfect for propagating!

5. Fishbone Cactus

With unusual vines unlike any other houseplant, the Fishbone Cactus is perfect for someone looking for a unique green gal to spruce up their space. And this easy going plant pal is not only safe around your furry friends, she's also a great pick for forgetful waterers.

6. Peperomia Jade

The easy-going Peperomia Jade is a great option for a lower light space and is safe to be around furry friends too. Her broad, deep green glossy leaves are compact and strong, and even filter toxins from the air.

7. Hoya Cummingiana

Like our other Hoya friends, cute little waxy leaves and star shaped clusters of scented flowers make the Hoya Cummingiana a stand out beauty. Her versatile non-toxic vines love to climb or trail, reaching for those bright, indirect rays of sunlight that this little houseplant hun loves.

8. Rhipsalis

This stylish succulent is an absolute showstopper. Bright, indirect light is where the Rhipsalis thrives, but this happy little houseplant can also do well in medium light. Preferring to dry out almost completely between waterings, this non-toxic indoor plant is perfect for pet & plant parents on the go.


9. Peperomia Lemon Lime

Another Peperomia plant that's easy going and pet safe, the Peperomia Lemon Lime is a great option to add a splash of colour to your space with all of the easy care and air purifying qualities of the Peperomia Jade.
