Here are some of our best plants for your pets to cuddle around and nibble (safely):

Plus, they're known for inviting in luck and prosperity (bringing you money and blessings)!

2.Calathea Rattlesnake

You probably already thought the rattlesnake plant was cool because of its name, but besides the fact it's pet-friendly and half (pet), you'll also be fascinated by its leaf movements, it closes its leaves at night and opens them again in the morning(sneaky as a snake)!  This ability comes from a small 'joint' between its leafs and stem, as the light moves the joints and, as a result, the rattlesnake leaves open and close.  So your rattlesnake buddy will be waking up and sleeping the same time you do.

3. Parlor Palm
