Does anyone know if this fern is suitable for Redfoots? It's common name is rabbit foot fern?

Also I've sourced some parlor palms! :)

I love bunny foot fern!!!! Have one myself but I love it enough not to plant it where the' be doomed to either root rot or being torn and leveled by the torts.
ImageUploadedByTortoise Forum1471367391.222199.jpg the best I find the weeds from my garden here's chickweed

When they are young they look like lumps of pillow moss ImageUploadedByTortoise Forum1471367532.015261.jpg more grass. Sure it doesn't look as nice as the house plants... But lately this is the best I can do. Plus soon they will only sleep in there anyway, moving to their outdoor tortoise garden ImageUploadedByTortoise Forum1471367640.871770.jpg this was Texas version of plantain. It didn't make it in that tank ImageUploadedByTortoise Forum1471367719.860339.jpg wandering Jew and live mosses... Wandering Jew of any kind s great but it stays low to the ground, so for night lately I've been getting ImageUploadedByTortoise Forum1471367841.516059.jpg wild Violet's and Mexican petunia. I have to find the pics of the latter

I've just bought:
2 parlour palms
2 large spider plants (the variegated version)
2 umbrella plants + 1 variegated umbrella plant that has much greater height than the other 2)
1 asparagus fern
and 2 bromeliads (one from what was described as a summer mix and the other a winter mix, but both different heights. I'm assuming all bromeliads are edible and safe.

So that should sort a large part of the enclosure for now. I would love to pop some succulents in (or aloe) but I'm unsure what's safe. I have lots of aloe already and African violets but again worried about whether they are edible.

Spider plants are low light tolerant and tough.
I've also never seen any of my Redfoot try to eat them.
Ours will happily munch on them if there isn't much else around. The babies seem to be particularly tasty.
In the outdoor enclosure full of other plants, forget it.
