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

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:
