From what I can tell the actual plant appears to be alright. I am not sure how they are in the pots. I believe possibly with a styrofoam with a fake soil on top. I would think those would not be safe.

If I were to use these I would remove the plant from the pot then boil it in dechlorinated salt water for a few seconds. After it cools I would stick it directly into the substrate.
