When you're trying to toddler proof your home, some people worry about their houseplants. One option is to keep them up far out of reach. If you're worried, though, and prefer to just keep nontoxic plants around, here are a few options.

Both jade and kalanchoes are considered nonpoisonous. They also both don't need much water so are also pretty easy keepers. If you'd like an indoor tree, the Norfolk pine and the Madagascar dragon tree are two possibilities that are believed to be nontoxic. To round out your nontoxic, toddler proof plant room, consider the corn plant and coleus. Yucca filamentosa is an outdoor plant that can also be grown as a houseplant. Look for it in our mail order catalog.
