5 Pet-Friendly Indoor Plants

Pets and plants are also important elements of any home. However, making them live harmoniously can be tricky. No matter how well-behaved your little fur ball might be, there will still be some instances when they would knock off a pot and take a bite of your precious indoor plant.

Here are five indoor plants that are pet-friendly and beneficial to humans as well:

Soothing and calming to humans, these beautiful herbs are also not harmful to our pets. Lavenders are not usually grown indoors, but with the right amount of sunlight, water, love, and care, varieties of lavender plant (French Lavender) can adapt to interior conditions.
