    I went to Lowe's the other day and bought some Purple Pitcher Plants, Pitcher Plants, a Sundew and some Venus fly traps, i created a tiny bog-like pond within his cage and they just look fabulous! They're growing great too! I actually found out these grow in the southern American area around rain forests, so they look great. I wanna add some more regular tropical plants, any suggestions?

    Did you clean all of the plants really well and wash away the soil prior to planting them in organic soil? I hope so, the chemicals are deadly.

    Your iguana is going to crush those plants.

    That was also my immediate thought. Those plants will not survive very long with an iguana. He will trample them at some point.

    Would they be bad if he tried to eat them?

    I would think so!
    I know for sure the Venus Fly trap is toxic to Iguanas, so it would be my guess [can't be for sure] that all Carnivorous plants may be.

    To be on the safe side, I would stay away from them.
    Couldn't find anything on the other two. Maybe the names just aren't quite right for the search mode.
    Anyway, I think I would just stay away from them.

    You could always set up a separate terrarium for the plants...
