I just wanted to get some thoughts on tomato plants in cages. I was thinking they grow thick and love water and heat so why not? tell me what you think"!
I like bamboo and most any tree that I can keep pruned back bonsai style. I have a few avocado trees going in my enclosures right now. Ferns are good for montane species as a low to mid canopy ground cover. If your intent is to save money just keep your eye out for things that grow in your area, then do the research on toxicity before using them in your enclosure. For store bought, you can really get your money's worth with pothos since it propagates so easily......Almost forgot hosta.....a personal favorite that likes shade in nature, so is a obvious choice for densely planted enclosures.Well there goes my idea lol. Are there any plants that aren't toxic.that you could find in a garden?
Check out patrick's thread. It has his usual condescending tone but really is brilliant with lots of good ideas along that line.Hey, that's a great idea for those backgrounds that have crooks and nannies to plant stuff in.
Yes, that is a great thread with awesome looking enclosures and backgrounds and a lot of great points for live plants. I've always felt the same way about plants. Plastic sucks. No further comment on the communication style of the OP.Check out patrick's thread. It has his usual condescending tone but really is brilliant with lots of good ideas along that line.
even more important is washing the leaves - both sidesIf you buy from any big stores like Walmart be sure to re pot it with organic soil/ fertilizer. I'm pretty sure the majority of these store use harsh chemicals. If you have any around I'd suggest local nurseries- supporting local is always best and they can tell you exactly what kind of stuff they use on every plant
