|Poisonous House Plants|
Swiss-cheese plant is a popular container plant because of its ability to withstand the wide range of conditions encountered in the home and office. To truly thrive Cerimans require high humidity, shade and a temperature above 20C / 72F
Flowering indoors is unusual but not unheard of and would certainly require the conditions mentioned above. The immature fruit is very high in oxalic acid and is quite dangerous to eat. The fruit takes up to a year to ripen and is similar to pineapple in flavor and texture.
It should be pointed out that Urticaria (an allergic disorder characterized by raised edematous (watery swelling) patches of skin) accompanied by intense itching can occur in sensitive individuals who ingest the ripened fruit.
