Are Cyclamen Houseplants Poisonous?

My wife loves the Cyclamen Plant our neighbor has so I thought I would buy her one for Valentines Day. We have a one year old little boy, so I wanted to be sure they weren’t poisonous. Thanks for your advice. Tony

Hi Tony,

Sorry to tell you, but Cyclamen are poisonous houseplants and should be kept away from small children and pets. So, unless you have a bright spot for your Cyclamen, where your little boy won’t be able to reach it, I would recommend a different flowering plant; perhaps something like a Lipstick Plant.
