9 Pet-friendly plants you can grow indoors

Do you fancy some greenery inside your home but worry about your pets? There are dangerous plants to pets and since most pets insist on chewing any greenery they can find, pet-owners constantly worry about their safety.

Luckily, there are some plants that you can comfortably introduce in your home and not have to worry about your pet’s safety.

Let’s have a look at of them:

Air Plants

If you are looking for low-maintenance plants that are also pet-friendly, then you should consider air plants. Such plants don’t need soil to thrive, only some sunshine and occasional watering, about once a week. Another beauty of air plants is that they can be hanging out of reach of pets to give your room that airy greenery while adding to its décor with the glass they grow in. 

Calathea Rattlesnake

The Calathea Rattlesnake which is also known as the prayer plant is perfect for rooms with little sunlight. 

African violet

The African violet will not stop at adding greenery in your room; it will also bring some color, thanks to its stunning blooms! You will get to enjoy purple or pink hues when the plant blooms depending on the piece you get. This plant also doesn’t need much sunlight to thrive.

Spider Plant

If you want some greenery that is also a great air purifier then you should consider the spider plant. This plant is very resilient and will thrive in a room with limited sunlight.

Bird’s Nest Fern

The Bird’s Nest Fern is another low-maintenance plant that you can introduce to your rooms. Thanks to its resilience in varying humidity, you can also introduce this beauty in your bathroom!


How about adding some delicious greenery to your home? Herbs such as mint, thyme, and basil can be introduced to your kitchen with no worry if your pets munch on them. They are also great for those moments you choose to cook a delicious meal or two! The only downside is that you will need to find a spot with plenty of sunlight if they are to thrive!

Polka Dot plant

If you have plenty of space in your home and don’t mind a plant that grows up to three feet then you should consider the polka dot plant. With it, you will get to bring some gorgeous color to your home. It comes in beautiful white or pink colors.  If you want it not to grow beyond 12 inches then you should keep it in a container. 

Parlor Palm

The parlor palm is a gorgeous green plant that will complement most home decors. It will thrive comfortably in your home as long as you introduce it to a few hours of indirect sunlight every day. 

Lipstick plant

The lipstick plant loves bright light and will thank you with gorgeous red blooms. You have to ensure that it stays in moist soil at all times and that it receives its bright light and it will grow up to 20 inches. 


The above are only a few pet-friend plants. There are many others like some succulents (not all), the friendship plant, some varieties of fern, Calathea Orbifolia, Gloxinia,  and the Christmas Cactus among others.
