Indoor Cat Playing in a Spider PlantHouseplants can bestow natural beauty to any Fort Worth rental home. But indeed, if you have pets, it’s essential to choose houseplants that are not poisonous. It may stun you to realize that many commonly known varieties of houseplants can be toxic for your pets.

And if you consider your pet would, in no way, try to eat a plant, that’s not the only way a toxic houseplant can bring on harm. Even rubbing against some plants can bring about skin irritation, digestion problems, and much more in your furry friend. To keep your pet safe while relishing the many benefits that houseplants have to offer, here are the top pet-safe houseplants for your rental home.

  • Majesty Palm. These large potted palms bring on an attractive statement in any room of the house. Lush and pet-safe, these palms call for some maintenance, but indeed, the upshot is entirely worth the effort.
  • Boston Fern. This classic houseplant has made something of a comeback over the past few years, and most importantly, it isn’t toxic for pets. A Boston Fern looks wonderful in a hanging planter or on top of a cabinet or bookshelf.
  • Money Tree. Heedless of the name, you can’t really grow money on a Money Tree. However, also called a “good luck tree,” it is well-liked among devotees of feng shui for its glossy green leaves and special braided trunk.
  • UFO Plant. Another esthetically amazing houseplant safe for pets is the Pilea Peperomioides, mostly called the “UFO Plant” for its saucer-shaped leaves. This exceptional plant can add true beauty to any room in your home.
  • Red Maranta Prayer Plant. The leaves of the Red Maranta Prayer plant are so beautiful, they closely appear to be flowers. With a special herringbone pattern and hints of red, the Red Maranta Prayer plant will add quite a bit of tropical beauty to your home without bringing any harm to your pet.
  • Maidenhair Fern. With its soft, feathery leaves, the Maidenhair Fern is a shade-loving plant that can develop in rooms that don’t get much sunlight. It’s similarly non-toxic for pets and looks nice in a pot or planter.
  • Spider Plant. Continually a favorite, the Spider Plant is both manageable to grow and safe for your pets to be around. Low-maintenance and attractive, the swinging leaves of the Spider Plant can add a burst of green to any area of your home.
