Are all Calathea plants non-toxic?
According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, all types of Calatheas are non-toxic to both pets and humans.
The pet babies and I are in our regular spots this morning. Ivy is sprawled on the table to my left, where I often reach over and pet her, which she loves.
And Charlie is in the recliner with me. We’re a very close knit family!
My Moon Flowers:
Each night I have anywhere from 6-8 white moon flowers glowing in the dark when I go outside with Charlie. They are so beautiful, but hard to get a photo of.
About half a dozen zinnias are blooming or on the verge of blooming.
I have been debating if I want to get a few pansies, but it’s still pretty hot in the afternoons. I just love those pansy faces. They always make me smile.
Don’t you just love these colorful Calathea house plants? I especially like to watch them all folded like a rolled up piece of paper.
And then each day they relax more and more until the whole leaf shows. I’m really into leaves with a lot of markings and color right now.
Non-Toxic Calathea Plants:
The best part is that Calatheas are not toxic to cats. I have yet to see Ivy with a leaf, but sometimes she does stretch out from the cupboard the TV is on to the beverage stand while I’m gone and scratch out some of the dirt.
She doesn’t seem interested in any of the plant leaves, thank goodness. If one is dangling down she might swat it to the floor, but then leaves it alone.
I know I was up no less than 6 times with Charlie last night. He’s having a terrible time coughing.
I just wonder if it’s carrying over from the strong smell when they were cleaning the air conditioner? I’ve been coughing some as well.
When I let him outside, he does not cough. When I take him to his sessions, he does not cough. Of course we’re mostly at home, but this is where he coughs.
I clean with non-scented cleaners and I no longer light candles. And I keep the air purifiers clean and try to keep the apartment clean, so I don’t know what else to do.
I haven’t worn perfume since I moved to Tulsa. So I just don’t know what it could be.
Abi started coughing not long after we moved here. And then not long after she was gone, Charlie began coughing.
I wonder if some of it is allergies because when allergies are bothering me, I hear Charlie sneeze too.
Have a great Saturday! Just hanging around the apartment today. Maybe organize some drawers for winter clothing.
I have to put a new toilet seat on that I ordered. They will only purchase one brand here. So I gave up and ordered my own.
You know, I just don’t recall toilet seats sliding years ago. I’m sure they didn’t use plastic for them then either.
Now everything seems to be made of plastic or some iteration.
