Red and Green Chinese Evergreen Plant is Poisonous

I just want t make sure it won’t harm my cat, who tends to chew on the plants.


Hi Kurt,

Your plant is a type of Aglaonema (common name is Chinese Evergreen), probably the Miss Thailand variety. Chinese Evergreens have a #2 toxicity level due to the Calcium oxalate crystals in the plant. Adverse reactions may include: skin irritation after contact with the sap, irritation of mouth, lips, throat, and tongue if chewed. Please keep your cat away from this plant.
