Would you please be able to help me identify these plants? I bought them at our local Canadian Tire store on a whim and foolishly did not make sure the names of the plants were on them – it only says “Assorted Tropical”. They are for my classroom in daycare, so I really have to make sure they are not toxic!
This is a Dracaena Lemon Lime. The ASPCA considers a Dracaena Lemon Lime a poisonous houseplant to dogs and cats because of the Saponins in the plant. A Dracaena Lemon Lime Plant is not considered poisonous to humans.
I would still keep it way from children.
This is a type of Pilea Plant, the common name is an Aluminum Plant. Aluminum Plants (Pilea) are non- poisonous houseplants.
You can read more about these plants in the Popular Houseplant section of the website.
