There is some unspoken rule among babies that if it can be put in your mouth, it will be. The wooden teether, the remote, the dog’s toy — it all goes to the same place. And with all those things going in baby’s chomper, creating a safe nursery is essential to your baby’s health and your sanity. That’s why you need to be careful about the houseplants you choose for the space. Below is a collection of 10 non-toxic, air-cleaning plants that look great and won’t send you running to the ER.
1. Fittonia: The very best part about this non-toxic plant is all the variety in the colored leaves. It’s pale pinks will look lovely in your baby girl’s nursery, but there are also yellows and reds that will match a more gender-neutral nursery. (via Flickr)
6. African Violet: Those velvety leaves and purple blooms are just the bright thing to fill that empty spot on your baby’s window sill. Warning, little hands will probably want to pick mini bouquets for you. (via Weekend Gardener)
7. Dracaena: Here’s a large plant that comes in several varieties, all of which are safe for nurseries. If your darling’s room is jungle-themed, dracaena is definitely the way to go. (via Modern Findings)
