    Question Air plants?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hey, I'm looking to plant both of my leo's viv's and 2ft and a 3ft. Using air plants and tiles. Are all air plants safe? Where in N.I should I go to get them?

    I have not played with Tillandsias in years but most species require bright light and humidity to do well long term. There are probably more xeric species available these days however I imagine that most of the commonly available varieties enjoy more humidity than leopard geckos do. When I kept plants in with my leopards I had the best success with smaller potted Sansevieria cultivars.

    You are unlikely to have any luck keeping live plants with your leo long term. The conditions necessary for the plant's well-being are unlikely to coincide with the leo's. However, if you don't mind switching plants out on a regular basis it is far more "doable". Essentially what you would do is have the plant in the leo's tank for a week and then remove it & give the plant at least two weeks in good growing conditions (MUCH better lighting and more water & humidity).

    Tillandsia will not harm your gecko, and are generally pretty tough plants.
