    Is the zz plant toxic to pets? I have recently aquired two zz plants and am concerned they may be toxic if chewed by my dog. Does anyone have info on this subject?

    Slightly poisonous, but with such a revolting taste that the dog is unlikely to chew it more than one first try, and won't eat enough to get a harmful dose.
