Discover Which Succulents to Avoid if You Have a Dog or Cat

Each month, we send two unique succulents to all our amazing subscribers, many of whom are also pet owners. Being both a plant and pet parent is a huge responsibility, and we want to help make sure your pets are safe and happy.

Our general rule for houseplants is this: a little bit of research goes a long way to keep your family, fur babies, and houseplants living in harmony.

Here are the 3 steps to avoiding toxic succulents:

1. Check Succulent Studios’ Monthly Succulent Announcement

On the first of each month, we announce the names of the succulents included in our subscription box that month. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram and turn on your notifications to get our announcement!

2. Check ASPCA’s Poisonous Plants List

Most of the succulents we send are NOT dangerous to animals, but it’s always best to double-check. Use the ASPCA’s list of poisonous plants for dogs and cats to see if that month’s succulents are on it. Be sure to check this with any other household plants you may have as well–you might be surprised what you find!

3. Gift Your Succulents to a Friend

If you think the succulents in your next box will cause a problem in your home, just gift that month’s box (redirect it to a friend), or skip it (no charge!) via your account page on our website.
