Succulents

Postby Becr79 » Thu Aug 31, 2017 10:04 pm

HI there. Just wondering if anyone knows if succulents are safe to plant in my by tank. I know they get dug up but succulenys are easy to replant. They are hardy and don't require much water so would be perfect in the tank. My cats dig them up all the time :heated: Just need to know if they're safe? :noknow:

Wouldn't use any live plants in cage. Unless you grew these plants yourself organically there is no way of telling if they were grown in soil containing pesticides like many commercially marketed plants are, and you wouldn't want to chance your BT taking a bite. Live plants are fine for small insectivores, but I wouldn't use for any type of animal that might try and eat some.
