Whether you’re building a reptile terrarium or vivarium, one consideration you need to make is choosing reptile-safe plants.
This is especially important for herbivores and omnivores, since they’re the most likely to graze on any plants within their enclosure. However, it’s also something worth keeping in mind even if you have an insectivore — if you have a bioactive terrarium (vivarium), then it’s possible for insects within the enclosure to much on the plants before getting eaten by your pet.
If you’re thinking about setting up a naturalistic terrarium or bioactive with live, reptile-safe plants, this article is a must-read. This comprehensive overview covers cacti, succulents, grasses, flowers, herbs, vegetables, and other types of greenery.
