Houseplants can add a beautiful splash of colour to your nursery and really bring the room together. But you’ll obviously want to choose plants that are safe for your baby and are easy to look after. You’ll have enough on your hands looking after your newborn!


Fittonia is a beautiful and delicate houseplant. The veins in the leaves vary from white to pink so they make a beautiful decorative plant – especially if you have any pink in your nursery. They are non-toxic and very easy to care for.

Boston Fern

This fast-growing fern is brilliant for filling a corner in your nursery. It’s safe if it’s ingested too. It does like a humid atmosphere so will need an occasional misting but it’s a very easy plant to look after.

Spider plant

If you’re looking for something that is super easy to care for and is non-toxic, the spider plant might be perfect for you. Its simple style suits the decor of most nurseries and, as a bonus, you’ll get lots of other spider plants from it for the rest of your house.

If you’re looking for a local nursery to buy a spider plant from, try Tops, they also have a great article here on using plants to purify the air.

Snake Plant

The snake plant is easy to grow and looks impressive in any nursery setting but particularly tropical- or animal-themed nurseries. They need very little care and can go weeks without being watered. They are also good at taking toxins out of the air.

Prayer Plant

These amazing plants take their name from their leaves curling up at night. They are non-toxic and will look great in your nursery. They only grow to about 8 inches high so make a great plant for a windowsill or shelf in your nursery.

Whichever houseplant you choose for your nursery, it’s bound to be the perfect finishing touch to your decor.
