It's common knowledge that having houseplants can help clean the air and also create a happier environment at home. But not all houseplants are the same. Some can actually be toxic if improperly ingested by pets or children, or even just by touching them. When shopping for a plant, consider easy-to-care-for and nontoxic plants for your home. Sure winners include the Boston fern, African violets, Swedish ivy and the parlor palm plants. These are all common varieties you can find at almost any home center.
