Smaller dog-friendly plants

Bertie the Boston Fern

Bertie the Boston Fern

We love Bertie. She’s a perfect addition to your home office because she doesn’t need too much light. She’s happy to sit on your desk looking pretty. Patch say to make sure you keep her well watered as she loves humidity and moist soil.

Juno the Calathea Zebrina

Juno is super chic. According to the experts at Patch, when you own a Juno it’s not just your dog that’s happy. This plant is happy with light watering and a gentle misting, pretty low maintenance. We think she looks great perched in the living room.

Jethro the Aeschynanthus Japhrolepsis

Jethro the Aeschynanthus Japhrolepsis

Affectionately known as the ‘lipstick plant’, this one’s called Jethro. We’re told he loves hanging out indoors. Those trailing leaves work best hanging free so they can trail. This is the kind of dog-friendly plant that works in bathrooms, too. Where it can enjoy lots of steam and humidity.

Statement pieces

Sharon the Parlour Palm

Parlour Palms are great for dogs – and have been popular houseplants for over 100 years. Totally tropical, they’re notoriously thirsty, especially in summer. Sharon will add a little bit of drama to any home.

Big Ken the Kentia Palm

Ken might be an eye-catcher, but this Kentia Palm is truly low maintenance. He’s a dog-friendly statement piece, and we think he looks great sat with a bookcase. Patch recommends watering him once a week, and keeping him misted every few days.
