Do Fleas Live on Houseplants?

Can fleas come from indoor plants or can they live in them?

Fleas should not be able to live in plants, you might see one jump from a plant but they cannot sustain their lives on a plant or from the dirt. Fleas hate salt, and I always sprinkle the carpets and under bed sheets, etc with salt. Then later I will vacuum it up.

They can infest the plant, as well as the soil. Get some suggestions from your local nursery to help with what you need.
