Houseplants are everywhere. Most people have plants in their homes, mostly for looks, but they also help bring a nice feeling to the home, and help to clean the air. There are lots of different plants out there so how do you know if the house plants you have or your friend has are actually safe for you and your children? Let’s look into some great places to find information on poisonous house plants.
First, by searching on the Internet you can always find a ton of information. There is a lot out there and a lot of great websites that are devoted to making sure that your children are nowhere near a poisonous plant. You can do a search through a search engine to find out information. You can make the search general or broad; it just depends on what you are looking for exactly. There are a lot of websites where you can look at pictures of plants that are poisonous and websites where you can search for a plant and then see if it is poisonous. It again just depends on what you are looking for.
Books are also another great source of information. If you are looking into getting a book for personal reference to know which plants are poisonous or not, something that is a good idea for parents, make sure that you get a book that was published, or updated in the last couple years. Information changes constantly and people are always doing more and more studies about certain topics. Books are great because you will always have access to the information and a picture right away. If you just want to do a check to see if your plants are poisonous and don’t want to have to buy a book, just go to your local library and check a book out.
Nurseries are also another great place to ask about poisonous plants. The people who work there generally know a lot about plants and will usually know if the ones they are selling are poisonous or not.
Usually plants will give a little information about them on a little tag, like how much to water them and sometimes if they are poisonous or not. Check the tag if you are thinking about getting the plant. It might just be right on the tag and you won’t have to look anywhere else.
If you are looking for information about poisonous houseplants, don’t worry. There is a lot of information out there. If you can’t find what you are looking for, find a gardening blog and ask them a question or leave a comment. Bloggers will read the comments and always are looking for things to write about that people will come back to read about.
