Welcome to The Bio Dude!
A handpicked selection of the Dude's best desert plants for Bearded Dragons. The plants included in the kit are meant for your dragons to eat, climb, perch and will thrive in the Bio Dude Terra Sahara BioActive substrate.
Bearded Dragons in general are very active, robust lizards that will readily enjoy foraging and working for their food if the challenge is present. These plants can handle weight, nails, and can be eaten to a stump, only to regrow if properly maintained. All plants are grown 100% organically with no pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers.
Included in this kit is:
x1 Opuntia Danicolor "8"-12"), x1 Elephant Feed Shrub small (6" - 8"), and one 4" pot Aloe Plant.
Opuntia cacti are naturally high in calcium, moisture, and other minerals which are a great snack for your Dragon. With their thick protective skin it will take your dragon some work to get this cacti down to the stump. These cacti are spineless and 100% harmless to your dragon.
Elephant Feed Shrubs are another great addition to your dragons enclosure. Growing very quickly with proper lighting, these shrubs can grow sideways, upwards, downwards, and creep over your woods giving your vivarium a deeper look. Not only are they 100% safe if ingested, these high in moisture plants are also very sturdy and once established become small trees for your dragons to rest and bask.
Aloe - A great addition to your vivarium as they are very easy to grow, can handle a beating, and are 100% safe if ingested. Aloe has been known to cause the stool to have a slightly higher moisture content due to its fibrous consistency.
It is also recommended to plant more healthy edibles in with your dragons. Mint, Basil, Oregano, Rosemary, Hibiscus, Kale, Lettuce are all examples of plants you can establish in your vivarium to give your terrarium a nice clean smell while providing natural food and enrichment for your dragon.
