Poisonous Houseplants Reference Book

They can be eye-catching, breathtaking, or even useful—a simple and beautiful way to bring a bit of nature indoors. Houseplants are a staple of interior decorating and for good reason. But do you know many of these common, indoor plants pose hidden dangers to children and pets, and may cause vomiting, diarrhea, convulsions, or even death? In Don’t Feed Me to Your Cat! A Guide to Poisonous Houseplants, horticultural professional Judy Feldstein shares important information about houseplants that are considered poisonous; providing pictures, explaining the various levels of toxicity, and the consequences if the plants are eaten. This poisonous houseplants reference book is an important addition to any home that has small children and pets. In this comprehensive and clearly illustrated guide, you’ll find out why kissing under the mistletoe is fine, but snacking on it isn’t—and how plant placement can be just as important as baby gates and hiding household chemicals when baby proofing your house. So before tempting your cat with a tantalizing California ivy or placing a heart leaf philodendron within a baby’s reach, be sure to consult this helpful book for advice. With detailed descriptions, valuable care tips, and a thorough plant glossary, Don’t Feed Me to Your Cat! is a must-read for parents, pet lovers, and plant hobbyists everywhere.
