Need a great gift idea for Valentine’s Day? How about a pet-friendly houseplant for your plant-loving Valentine? While it’s best to keep houseplants out of reach, sometimes it’s impossible!
Here are the top three, most loved, pet-friendly houseplants that we grow at Mill Creek!
Peperomia - This plant comes in a variety of shapes and colors. It was voted ‘Houseplant of the Year’ in 2022 by the National Garden Bureau. It is easy to grow, preferring bright light and well-drained soil.
Ponytail palm - This distinctive plant is not actually considered a palm but, in fact, is part of the succulent family. The large, rotund trunk is used to store water and the long slender leaves fan out in a ponytail fashion, giving it its name. Ponytail palms are low maintenance; preferring bright, indirect sunlight and their soil more on the drier side. These plants will add interest to any spot in your home!
Spider plant - This plant is one of the most common and easiest houseplants to grow. It tolerates a range of light, moisture, and soil conditions. Spider plants prefer to be a little root-bound in their pot and like their soil to dry out between waterings.
