Jerry Baker, The Impatient Gardener says: "A house plant is any plant that will stay alive when grown in a container indoors. This goes to show that there is almost no limit to your selection. Just make sure that you can provide the plant you chose with the proper amount of sunlight and care."
Jerry also says: "As every mother knows, toddlers will put almost anything into their mouths, and leaves or berries of many common house plants are poisonous. Plants to avoid include croton, dumb cane, Jerusalem cherry, ornamental pepper, and poinsettia. Keep them out of reach, or don't keep them at all."
Choose wisely! If you are not sure ask the associate at the greenhouse or post the question to the group.
