My mom has piles of those things growing EVERYWHERE! I was under the impression they were toxic though? If a roach or cricket or something ate the plants I mean, obviously the T probably won't eat plant matter.Perhaps Golden Pothos?
i've always been told to stay away from potting soil with fertilizer mixed in...but straight potting soil should be fine.Awesome thread, I just bought my first T and was looking for that natural look as well. Now my question is does it matter what substrate you use? Thanks for the advice!
very humid.Rule of thumb is that "potting mix" = bad and "potting soil" = no additives. A few nitrates shouldn't hurt the T since nitrates are alllllllllll around us outside. I'm doing a base layer of soil with sphagnum on top for my pokie-- not sure how humid it needs to be for an Avic.
I've been wondering something along the same lines about isopods and pothos. Not about the roots specifically, but will they eat the pothos in general? I really need isopods bad before there's a problem...I dunno what my Avics do with their boluses most of the time, as no matter how good I search atleast 95% of the time I can't find them.Can I use isopods to keep the soil clean or will they eat the roots?
plants aren't required...for arboreals, they give them more to work with and create their webbing. a lot of times plants are more for our own aesthetics than anything...that being said, i'm putting plants in my avicularias' enclosures when they get big enough.Are plants required for avics?
