    A beautiful houseplant (or three) brings a breath of fresh air to any space. If your nursery is large, a dramatic potted plant can make the perfect statement. Short on space? Try poking colorful cacti or tiny terrariums of succulents onto shelves and other out-of-the-way places, or use them to create a living wall or mobile. Hanging plants are another excellent option and have the added benefit of being too high for curious hands to reach.

    Remember: Some plants—even common houseplants—can be...MORE harmful if ingested by children or pets. Before you buy any plant for your nursery, do your homework and make sure it’s safe.
