Not sure where to start? You can grab one of their assorted boxes of pet-friendly plants or cat-friendly indoor plants to start your newfound plant obsession.
Their website clearly labels which plants are pet-friendly, so you’ll have no trouble browsing through and selecting the ones that catch your eye. And, if you need to upgrade your pet’s water or food bowl, you can grab one of their minimalistic single or double bowls.
Monrose Indoor Plants
Monrose Indoor Plants is one of Melbourne’s best pet-friendly indoor plant boutiques! Most of their plant varieties are pet-friendly, and the ones that aren’t are clearly labelled, so you’ll know exactly which ones your furry friend will approve.
If you’re looking to add a pop of colour to your home, the Calathea Roseopicta might be the purr-fect choice for you. With gorgeous pink-centred leaves with a deep, dark green border, it’s known to be one of the most striking Calatheas you can get your hands on. New to the plant world? Opt for the Peperomia Obtusiofolio Lemon Lime, a low-maintenance plant that prefers warmer temperatures and bright indirect sunlight.
Or head into the boutique to chat with the friendly team and see which plant is best suited for your lifestyle. Don’t forget to grab a couple of treats and goodies for your furry friend while you’re there!
