Adding Plants to tank

Postby monster4567 » Thu Jan 14, 2021 5:40 am

I have had my beardie for over a year, and he is a little over 1. I have wanted to add plants for a while but decided to finally do it. I am looking for ideas that would do well and ways to add them. I have a 6ft long tank that's 2 ft wide (should be plenty of room to add whatever. Should I add pots, a low Tupperware, turn a corner into a garden, etc? Any ideas are appreciated.

I'm considering adding some plants too. Charlie and I killed the succulents I added when he first came to live at the library (I refuse to take the whole blame,) but I think I'd like to grow edible herbs such as cilantro and basil in his tank. He's super picky about greens, and I have read that some beardies want them in a more natural environment, growing instead of from my refrigerator.

I think I'm gonna add herbs and then maybe a few succulents. Not gonna add too many plants for now.

I would stay away from succulents as most are poisonous to beardies. They lick everything around them, so make sure you choose plants that are safe and even a bit edible like cilantro, parsley, and turnip.

I was only going to add aloe vera I think maybe a dwarf jade later. I thought those were okay? I think in total it was a snake plant, aloe, lemongrass, rosemary, and cilantro. They all are still really small and not gonna add them all together.
