    Is it a good idea to put live plants in T's enclosures?

    It's done all the time with good success. It really depends on what you are going for in an enclosure (and species).

    Golden pothos are nice since they virtually do not need any light.

    A lot of people put live plants in with their tarantulas. Just don't be offended if the tarantula moves it around a bit :)

    I like the look of plants, but the spider's needs are the priority, so I use plastic plants.

    Im the same, plastic plants are better, cause if you use live plants and the T decides to web it all up and/or digging it up ripping it apart, then it's a waste of money plus a mess to clean, as for plastic T's do dig them up and relocate them, it's not much of a problem and not a mess.

    I grow my own plants so it's not much of a problem for me.

    If you know what a plant needs to survive or even thrive while you take the conditions that the tarantula may prefer in account then you can have a very succesful planted terrarium.
