Finding dandelions

Postby Punkyspice93 » Thu Feb 22, 2018 6:06 pm

So I'm new to owning a beardie, and Nostromo is about 3 months old I would guess. I've heard that beardies LOVE dandelions. It's currently middle of winter here in Colorado, so is there anywhere I can buy some fresh one? I don't have the means to grown them inside. Thanks!

The only place here in Maryland that I found, was Wegmans. Or you could try some of the Asian markets.

Can you order the seeds in a packet online, they are incredibly easy to grow in a pot. Let some go to seed and you'll have a perpetual supply of the flowers and leaves for your dragon.

I don't have a way to grow them inside though. No heat/light source. And my windows don't get enough light

Keep in mind, come spring/summer when you collect your own, be aware the area has not been sprayed and DO NOT collect from roadside, near parking lot nor driveway as these will all have been exposed to exhaust.
