Toxicity to pets
Emerald Feather is an ornamental indoor/ outdoor plant in the Asparagaceae family. The toxic principle saponins may be found in all plant parts (fronds, roots, berries) of this plant family. Saponins are irritant, bitter-tasting phytochemicals and ingestion results in mild, self-limiting gastrointestinal distress. Veterinary intervention is generally unnecessary following exposure to Emerald Feather. Do seek veterinary care for any pet with persistent signs (e.g. multiple bouts of vomiting or anorexia > 24 hr).
