To Consider when Choosing Houseplants

Houseplants make wonderful gifts especially during holidays and dark winter months.

Let us help you choose!  Consult with our customer service staff about plant requirements; then, confirm that the recipient has the best setting for the plant and can keep it watered adequately.

Also, pets and children may be curious and want to touch or taste the new greenery.  The consumption of any plant material may cause vomiting and gastrointestinal upset for dogs, cats and children – whether poisonous or not.

If concerned, check with your veterinarian or pediatrician.  For more information about houseplants’ relative toxicity, visit the ASPCA’s list of common plants that are toxic and non-toxic
