Preserving greens?

Postby BeardMom » Sun Oct 21, 2018 10:18 am

This (to me) sounds like kindof a "duh" question but I'm wondering if there's any way to preserve my beardie's greens so they last longer. I don't wanna freeze them for obvious reasons but I'm also hesitant to try to dry them out because I think it cuts the nutritional value down quite a bit. Any tricks up yall's sleeves as to how you might make them last longer would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I just out mines in a ziplock bag. After I give my beardie his greens I spray the bag with the greens inside and zip it back up without any trapped air in it and then I just put it in the fridge

I do that too and it works well. As soon as I get greens home or harvest them, I wash them, cut the stem out and feed that to the roach colony, put the leaves in a quart ziploc with a fold of paper towel, remove the air, and put it in the fridge. I can keep greens crisp for weeks that way.
