Hi,

Ensuring the suitability of any live plant that you are considering to place within the terrarium is very important, as some plants may be toxic to your amphibian. You should always research a new species of plant that you want to use in the terrarium, to ensure that it is safe to use and that it will not be an irritant to your pet. You should also ensure that the plant is suitable for the conditions within the terrarium; otherwise it may wither and die if conditions such as temperature, light and humidity are not suitable for it.

Some popular plants to use in amphibian housing include Bromeliads, ferns such as the Bird’s Nest Fern & Java Fern, Wandering Jew, Creeping Fig, Devil’s Ivy, Live Moss such as Java Moss, Orchids and Draeceana. Live plants should always be sourced from somewhere that you can guarantee that they have been grown using fertilizer-free methods to avoid any chemicals being introduced to your amphibian’s home.

There is a ‘Live Plants’ section on the main forum if you have any more questions about the suitability of certain plants for you amphibian set up.
