Toxic houseplants

The following is a listing of common house plants of which all or part of the plant may be toxic to humans or animals. There are many outdoor species of plants, not listed here, that are also poisonous. If you are not sure about the safety of a particular plant, regard it as dangerous, until you learn otherwise!
If you suspect that a part of one of these plants has been eaten, contact your local poison center, immediately.
Remember, the chemicals and poisons which you use to grow your plants may also be toxic, and as such, please regard these plants as "unsafe."
