This is a guide to safe plants but it should not be used as a substitute for calling the poison center if a person or an animal has eaten a plant. The California Poison Control System is available 24 hours a day by calling If you are not in California, call to be connected to your nearest poison control center. The plants in this list are considered to be safe to humans. This list is in two parts.
The first list is alphabetical by common name and the second list is alphabetical by Latin or scientific name. Keep in mind that even non-toxic plants can cause vomiting in humans and animals. Also children can choke on a plant piece and have gagging or choking.
Some plants that are not a problem to humans can be a problem for animals. The plant names that are listed in bold typeface are known to be dangerous to animals dogs and cats. Because dogs, especially, will eat large amounts, it is important to keep pets and these plants apart. Plants are considered poisonous if they can cause some type of negative reaction from the exposure. Reactions can range from mild to serious, depending on the amount of the exposure. Some plants cause only a red itchy rash. Some plants cause vomiting and diarrhea.

But some plants can be very dangerous and have effects on the heart, liver or kidneys. In general, plants considered poisonous to humans are likely to be poisonous to animals as well. Animals tend to eat larger amounts than humans so they may get sicker than humans from eating plants. You must have a name of the plant either the common name or the Latin scientific name to get the most reliable specific information. A call to the poison center about an unknown plant described as having big shiny green leaves is not enough information to know what the plant is.

Earth does have its own intrinsic pleasure sharpened, no doubt, by intrinsic pain but that's not the joy compounded here, where all earth's valuables-or all those known when this palace was imagined-reach their climax, their elements minutely interwoven: esoteric truths of mathematics, Quranic and poetic texts become grand spectacle visual artifacts and, only after, oracles of wisdom.
Surely this is the most joyful paradise Even abnegation turns sublime: the injunction against making a likeness entices every nuance of geometry to startle a reflecting pool with its bare face and multiply its unsuspected beauty: infinity made manifest, the golden mean, the seventeen varieties of symmetry renounce the rigors of computation where exactly do I put my eyes?
Surely this is the most joyful paradise Pomegranate. Captain Burton said it is a pleasing task to comment upon the excellent paper with which we have just been favoured. There is open to our young society a wide field in the discussion and ventilation of those great popular questions which society at large seems to hold as settled, when no one has hitherto been allowed to answer them. Let the honour of the attempt be ours, and the anthropologist should assume as his motto the old line—. Homo sum, humani nil a me alienum puto. I venture also to compliment my friend Mr.
Reade upon his views of that branch of social science popularly known as missionary enterprise. He has also very properly preferred the abstract to the concrete style of treatment; and whilst he has denounced missions, he has not denounced missionaries. I shall follow in his steps, merely supplementing his West African experiences by a conscientious account, and necessarily a bird's eye view of my observations in Western India, the prairie tribes of America, and tropical Africa generally. By way of preface, a few lines may be devoted to considering the motives which induce the public to subscribe so largely to the support of missions.
In the fiery days of the Crusades, men armed themselves and rode forth to cure the soul of the infidel by spoiling his body—a peculiar proceeding, of which, unhappily, modern instances have not been wanting. In our softer times, men are content to pay for substitutes. Many mulct themselves for the best of motives, an earnest desire to carry out the commands of their faith. Many do so because it is the fashion, and because they love to see their names in print. Some look upon the missionary as the forerunner of the merchant.
Others appear to think that such liberality " purifies," as the Arabs say, their property. There are men whose principal profits in the African trade are derived from such abominations as selling pestilent rum, and supplying negroes with arms and ammunition wherewith to enslave or slaughter one another. Yet these men will subscribe largely to missions.
With respect to the oft-agitated question of difference between the Catholic and the Protestant style of proselytising, I have offered an opinion in a work lately published A Mission to Dahome , vol. Against the former there is a common charge, namely, that though ardent and self-sacrificing; and though prompt to endure every discomfort, even that of celibacy, where it is least endurable, they are too accommodating to heathenism, and therefore they do not last.
This may have been the case in the days when Jesuit and Jansenist contended for the conquest of the convert. But it is not so now. The French mission at Whydah has constantly incurred the persecution of the local Fetishmen, yet from April to the present date they have never made a convert. The Spanish missionaries at Fernando Po, established in , have failed as notably amongst the Bube; they cannot even persuade the wild women around them to add another inch to their half-foot of attire.
And what has become of the noble establishment which, in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries attacked the superstitions of the Congoese? Their cathedrals and churches are level with the ground, their priests are dead, and here and there a crucifix hanging round a pagan's neck, tells the tale of past times. When marching towards the cataracts of the Congo River in , I asked my guide the meaning of a pot of grease tufted with feathers, and stuck in a tree.

On the other hand, Protestant missions are described as being, like the constitution which breeds them, comfortable and feeble, offering salaries to married men, who, in squabbles about outfits, passages, re-passages, and conveyance of children, manage to spend about half a million per annum, which had much better be transferred to Connaught and to Western Ireland.
The material upon which all missions practise may briefly be described as Christian, Moslem, and Pagan. The firstnamed is perhaps the most unmanageable; witness Abyssinia, to which I propose reverting. The Moslem, hardly less amenable to Trinitarian doctrine, is, as Mr. Reade has justly remarked, a heterodox Christian, in fact a modern Arian, and the nineteenth century lacks an Athanasius to put him down.
The Arab Prophet or rather Apostle never pretended to found a new faith; his mission was to restore to its original purity the religion revealed by God to man, through the succession of Adamical, Noachian, Mosaic, and Christian dispensations. The Pagans may be divided into two great families. The civilised, for instance, the Japanese, Chinese, and Hindus having various settled forms of worship, and mythologies more or less extensive, have rejected Christianity. The uncivilised, as the Africans and the American aborigines, have either accepted the new religion, like the tribes subject to the Amazon missions, or have ignored it, as in Africa.
Reade has perhaps said too much when he sees no reason why the negro should refuse the faith of his masters. It is impossible, save to those who have dwelt long among these people, to understand the influence which Fetishism exercises over their most trivial actions. Nor does the negro, as a rule, believe in a future state. The abolition of polygamy is to him what it would be to us, a forbiddal of marriage. When we would instill our ideas into his mind, we are teaching him Euclid or Aristotle, before he knows what an alphabet means. The language of Holy Writ is a mystery to him.
