Pet Friendly Plants

Looking for houseplants but want to make sure they’re safe around your furry friends? Look no further! Here are some of our favourite ‘non-toxic’ plants and how to care for them.

Calathea Ornata

The Ornata enjoys bright, indirect light and keep them our of direct light. Water weekly and do not let the soil dry out completely in between watering. Don’t over water Calatheas as this will cause root rot.

Prayer Plant

The Prayer Plant enjoys bright, indirect light. Water weekly during the summer months when the soil has dried out and less often over the winter. The benefit from a misting every now and again.

Pilea peperomioides

Pileas thrive in bright indirect light but can survive in dappled shade. Keep them out of direct sun as this will discolour their leaves. You can mist the leaves to boost the surrounding humidity and clean their leaves to keep them dust free and shiny. Water regularly and let the top few centimetres of soil dry out before watering again.

Fishbone Cactus

These plants need plenty of indirect bright light. Water weekly but make sure the soil is fully dry before watering again. During the growing season, fertilise with a cactus feed once a month to keep it healthy.

Pineapple Plant

This exotic plant needs at least six hours of bright indirect sun each day. Water the plant when it dries out and feed it twice a month with a general indoor houseplant feed.

String of Hearts

The strings love bright indirect light, although a few hours of morning sun each day will keep them happy. Keep the soil slightly damp over the summer months, letting it almost dry out between watering. Water less over the winter.

Peperomia Watermelon

The Watermelon like indirect sunlight and will keep them happy and thriving. Water them just enough to dampen the soil, they don’t want to be waterlogged.

Sedum Burrito

This plant can tolerate a huge range of conditions, but it prefers bright, indirect light and a well-draining soil. The Burrito is a drought tolerant plant so it’s safe to under water as opposed to over water. They will naturally start to trail when they grow long enough.

Hoya Kerrii

These little heart shaped plants prefer a little shade as sunlight can scorch the leaves. Make sure they dry out in between watering too, overwatering will cause root rot.

Polka Dot Plant

The colour of these beautiful plants develops best in low light situations, but the plant itself grows well in indirect light too.

Spider Plant

Spider Plants enjoy a medium light and to be kept out of direct light.
