pet-friendly succulents

If you’ve got cats or dogs roaming around your place, then you may have caught them attempting to go vegan by noshing on your houseplants at some point. What you may not have known is that some traditional plants can be harmful to animals. Check out these pet-friendly, nontoxic succulents (according to the ASPCA) that we’re always planting at Plant Nite events.

NOTE TO HUMANS: We know that all of these plants look super delicious and nutritious, but “nontoxic” doesn’t mean that these will suffice as a spinach alternative when you’re too lazy to head out to the grocery store. Please continue to feed yourself and your pets traditional foods for your appropriate species.
