Bamboo Palm

The Bamboo Palm is a great indoor house plant that not only is safe for Fido and Fluffy but is also excellent at filtering the air of toxins and will tolerate low light conditions.

Ponytail Palm

Fun, distinct, and hardy. The Ponytail Palm is low-maintenance and adaptable. Like its brother the Bamboo Palm this plant is excellent at filtering the air of toxins and will tolerate low light conditions.

Spider Plant

A favorite among veterinarians, this plant is easy to grow indoors and incredibly resilient. Spider plants are also great air-purifiers, so they can help get rid of your home’s toxins.

Calathea Orbifolia

The leaf pattern on this particular Calathea is exquisite if you ask us. This houseplant needs partial shade, which makes it perfect for a plant stand or a shelf in a bedroom that doesn’t get much natural light.

(Certain) Succulents

Add some pet-friendly succulents, like this Haworthia, Echeveria, or a group of air plants, to your countertop and you’re golden.

African Violet

If you’ve got open shelving in your kitchen, these flowers would be a great, colorful addition. (Just make sure the plant isn’t near a drafty floor vent or window.) With indirect sunlight, they will bloom beautifully.

Gloxinia

Find a sunny window and these flowers (native to Brazil) will blossom in bright shades of purple, pink, red, or blue. Keep the soil moist and feed these blooms liquid plant food every two weeks for maximum health.

Boston Fern

The beautiful Boston Fern is also on the lower end of the maintenance spectrum since it requires food only every two months. Your kitty can bat at the ferns all he wants and your puppy can even take a bite—this plant is safe for cats and dogs.

Watermelon Peperomia

The Peperomia family includes lots of varieties, but we're partial to the Watermelon (a quick look at its leaves makes clear how it got its name). They prefer to be kept out of direct sunlight and don't need a ton of watering to stay happy.

Herbs

Basil, rosemary, and thyme are great kitchen herbs that are totally safe for your pet to snack on. They love direct light, so leave them to hang out by a window all day long.
