Calathea Lancifolia Rattlesnake - Top 10 Best Pet Friendly Plants for Your Home - JOMO Studio

Calathea Lancifolia Rattlesnake

Prayer Plant

Calathea Lancifolia, aka the Rattlesnake Plant, is a great, pet-friendly houseplant option for homes that have both pets and young ones. This is due to its care routine being much more low maintenance than other varieties of Calathea within the Marantaceae family. Its foliage is tougher, being able to handle a little less light and less consistent care routines than its sister plants, not to mention the stunning patterns on its long, linear leaves.

Chamaedorea Seifrizii

Bamboo Palm

Bamboo Palm, aka Chamaedorea Seifrizii, is a stunning tropical plant that you can add to your pet-friendly home. Getting its name from its likeness to bamboo, with clumping stems marked by older leaves that have shed, this palm is very slow-growing and will add a beautiful touch to your home with deep green leaves that arch from the stem. They can even handle slightly dimmer locations in your home, allowing you to keep a little bit of green everywhere!

Fittonia, aka Nerve Plant, a compact, trailing plant with striking patterned foliage coming in greens, reds, pinks and whites, is a delightful option for a furry friend-filled home.

That being said, they can tolerate a range of light conditions, but they will need a little bit of pruning once in a while! Keep your pet-friendly plant in a humid environment and it will love you even more.
