Need a Pet Friendly Non-Toxic alternative to the popular Monstera?

Need a Pet Friendly Non-Toxic alternative to the popular Monstera?

As pet owners, we want to make sure our furry friends are always safe and healthy. However, many common household plants can be toxic to pets if ingested.

As responsible pet owners, it’s essential to be aware of which plants can be harmful to our dogs, and take the necessary precautions to keep them out of reach.
Here at Monrose Indoor Plants we specialise in Pet Friendly Non-Toxic Indoor Plants. For example the Monstera, AKA the Swiss Cheese Plant or Fruit Salad Plant is toxic to cats and dogs due to the presence of Calcium Oxalate crystals.

These crystals can cause oral irritation, excessive drooling, vomiting, and difficulty swallowing.

A pet friendly alternative would be the Bird of Paradise. Keep in mind this plant IS mildly toxic but only if a large amount is consumed (Flowers are toxic but this plant very rarely flowers indoors).
Bird of Paradise are available in store now!

A triple planted very tall 300mm Bird are $120 and a double planted Bird is $100.

* Please remember just like some people are allergic to certain foods your pet may react to certain plants differently to others. It is always safest to prevent your pets eating large quantities of any plant. Excess consumption of non-toxic plants can cause vomiting and diarrhoea. Please talk to your vet if you have any concerns.
