Most types of succulents are completely harmless, but the few that are will cause temporary digestive distress if they are ingested. To find non-toxic varieties, use the Pet-Safe filter and let us know in the order comments that you want all non-toxic varieties. It's not often that a pet or child tries to eat a succulent, but we recommend keeping them out of reach just in case.

- Aloe vera
- Cactus (not toxic, just spiny)
- Euphorbia (sap can also irritate skin)
- Jade plants (Crassula)
