There are many choices when it comes to indoor plants, however you need to do some research if you have children or pets in your home as some indoor plants can be toxic for them. That is why we have compiled our list of top picks of plants that are not only easy to care for but are also from the non toxic category when it comes to indoor plants.

Wandering Dew (Tradescantia)

The wandering dew is probably the easiest plant to take care of indoors. The only maintenance it needs it to be regularly trimmed as it sprouts fast. The only thing to be cautious of is where you put your clippings though as this plant will take root and sprout anywhere and once it takes root will grow uncontrollably.
