Plants safe for Viv use?

Postby Fxybx3 » Wed Nov 13, 2019 1:54 pm

Hello all! I'm trying to encourage my girl to eat more veg and I'm hoping adding live plants would help.
I've been looking into some and have found a few articles giving lists, but I'd like to not take the word of one or two resources and really get some solid advice.
What can I add and what is best for her health?
Thank you!

Personally , i'm not a fan of bioactive setups for arid region reptiles.

I don't think there are REALLY any bearded dragon safe live plants you can keep in a bearded dragon indoor enclosure. The dragon will promptly destroy them.

I get that, but I gotta try, and I'm not terribly concerned if he does destroy them--got lots of extras, and the "pots" will be virtually impossible for him to knock over at his current size. If he doesn't get used to them, and does destroy them, well, at least I find out.

For plant species, I chose arid plants--all succulents or arid sedges--that appeared on at least 5 BD-safe lists, and didn't appear on any BD-toxic lists.
