    I want to buy a nice big yucca plant soon and from the research I've done it says they are bird safe. But one site (I can't find it now unfortunately) said that the plant is safe but to be very careful with the "spine"

    Does anyone have any idea what that means? What is a spine and how can it be harmful?

    Ahh, so it's just the pointyness then. I was confused cause spine makes me think of the trunk. Thank you Shawna! I guess that would be too risky because Blu might decide to fly onto it one day.

    I wish there was a bird safe plant website that shows the pictures of the plant, along with the names. Does anyone know of a resource like that?

    I need a few big plants. They will not be in Blu's room but he may spend some supervised time in the room with the plants sometimes.

    Jade grows well and is bird safe. Plus they can get large and live a long time.

    Thanks Zara! I was being lazy not wanting to look up pictures :lol:But I will do it when things calm down a little next week. Thanks for the link!

    I also had a yucca many years ago that I regret not taking with me when I moved. I love the look of it. It reminds me of the tropics. I had a Quaker back then too and didn't even think to look up what plants were bird safe cause he never did naughty stuff. :rolleyes:

    Ahh, I never thought about jade. I think that's a beautiful plant too! I've never seen a big one for sale. Actually I think I did once but it soo expensive. I will get a smaller one though and wait for it to get big. Thanks for the suggestion!
