    Question Is Mother of Thyme safe?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    The official name is Thymus Serpyllum and it might be the same as Creeping Thyme.

    I'd love to grow some in my Leo and frog tanks, it doesn't smell strong, I've seen it used in one tank, and it can be fed to tortoises, but honestly I have no idea if it's toxic to geckos or if bugs eating it in the tank before being eaten by my gecko would be a problem.


    (Sorry if this is the wrong forum!)

    if it is safe for tortises than it is probably safe for leopard geckos, it would not be a natural plant for them but it is spposed to grow on rocky sandy banks, which leopard geckos usually live in, it is also a fast growing ground cover which means you would need to trim and pull it back if you don't want your whole enclosure covered by mother of thyme, one last thing you would need to water it and would need a light for it to grow. if you don't want to do all this ( it is a beautifull plant though ) than you can always head to a dollar or thrift store and find some fake plants.
