Hi,

I was advised in another thread to put plants in my closed enclosure to maintain humidity. I do not know however if these plants are safe for my sulcata.

These plants have been with us for several years now and I am certain that these do not contain chemicals that could harm my tortoise. Unfortunately, I do not have the slightest idea on what these plants are called and so I couldn't do my own research on it (except the aloe Vera).

Is any of these plants ok to put inside the enclosure?

Thanks in advance.

If it's a truly closed chamber plants are not necessary. Water bowls for self soaking would be be more beneficial for the tortoise even it the tortoise doesn't soak in them they will help keep the humidity high.

I do see one thats usually a no no, and that is what looks like Dieffenbachia.. aka Dumb Cane

Dieffenbachia is a genus of tropical flowering plants in the family Araceae. It is native to the New World Tropics from Mexico and the West Indies south to Argentina. Some species are widely cultivated as ornamental plants, especially as houseplants, and have become naturalized on a few tropical islands.

➡️➡️ With both children and pets, contact with dieffenbachia (typically from chewing) can cause a host of unpleasant symptoms, including intense numbing, oral irritation, excessive drooling, and localized swelling. However, these effects are rarely life-threatening.

There is an app, although I’ll have to look for the name.... you can take photo of plant & it will tell you name of it. Used here w friend at nearby lake area and it was very accurate

I don’t see anything there that I would feed to a tortoise. A lot of them are what I would call houseplants and they are usually reared with a load of fertilisers and pesticides prior to sale which would render them unsuitable for feeding even if the plant is OK.

The Seek app by iNaturalist is very good for plant ID

Then look the plant up on The Tortoise Table plant database for suitability to feed
