Plant people, unite!
Looking to spruce up your home with some botanical beauties? If you have a dog, it's important to make sure you're filling your space with plants that won't hurt them! Some popular houseplants are toxic to dogs, and we all know your pup can be easily tempted to give your greenery a little gnawing.
Read on for our top 9 non-toxic houseplants safe for dogs, modelled by Earth Rated office dog
9. Calatheas (Prayer Plant)
If a plant could have a role as a dramatic actor, the calathea would be first in line. When the calathea is unhappy, it will react with a theatrical droop. Only to perk back up once watered again, because of course.
8. Bird's Nest Fern
The bird's nest fern is a tropical plant whose leaves resemble a bird of paradise! If your dog loves chasing birds, this plant is the next best thing.
7. Christmas Cactus
This cactus is named for its red blooming flowers! Green and red and spikey all over, it's sure to please long past the holiday season.

Like if you tested out a new pen on a sheet of paper, and turned that shape into a hardy indoor plant. What's not to love?
