Like our Joepke, there are more green amigos. They are all gems, but they contain juices that people and animals don’t like. We list 8 poisonous houseplants.

1. Begonia Maculata (speckled plant)

Meet Pippi. With her dots, Pippi is a real attention-getter, but secretly she is quite shy. Pippi’s juice is treacherous. It irritates the skin and mucous membranes, is diuretic and causes vomiting tendencies.

2. Syngonium Neon Robusta (Arum calyx)

Hey Arnold! What a man! He is very easy to get along with, but his juice and berries are best avoided. The juice causes violent diarrhoea, cramps and mucosal inflammation.

3. Monstera Deliciosa

Alfredo is a pro at purifying the air, but he is also a bit poisonous. Alfredo’s Monstera friends Paco and Dora are also poisonous. So be careful with your pets!
