I have tried to read as much as i can on the Tokay i wanted to know if there are many safe plants i could use for my enclosure?
I know of the snake plant and i planed on putting in some bamboo for it to climb on. Is there anything else?

I use pothos . . phothos. . . i dont remember how to spell it. I use a mix of peat moss, some kind of reptile bark, and another type of moss like burch moss all mixed as a substrate and just plant them right in the tanks. The substrate keeps really moist to help with humidity and the plants seem to like it.

Photos, Snake plant, and Mother-in-laws tounge is your best bet. You want to put a nice sturdy plant in with them. there are other plants like calathea, creeping fig, monstera that you can use, they are more for fill. tokays need something sturdy to hang and bounce around on. there are alos alot of philidendron that you can put in that is safe.
