TOXIC HOUSEPLANTS

I get a lot of questions from people asking what houseplants are toxic and nontoxic, sometimes they all are hard to remember, so here a good list of them.

 

The number for The National Poison Center is 800-222-1222

 

Anthurium

 Azaleas

 Caladium

Philodendron-many varieties-including pothos

 Scheffelera

 Spathephyllum

Some plants that can be brought indoors during the Holidays can be poisonous also-

daffodil and hyacinth in the spring.

 

Beware of a lot of the holiday greens, mistletoe, mountain laurel, yew and holly berries; these are poisonous too.

 

I will be following this up with a post on Safe house plants, so be sure to follow!

 

 

hope this helps!:smileywink:
