    Just thought I'd throw this out there.

    Would Mint Be safe for Herps?
    Just because It tends to grow fast, spreads easy, and It would keep it smelling fresh :D

    And It would Probably look alright.

    Again Just thought I'd throw this out there :p

    I am not sure what mint you are revering to, my herps do eat basil and that is very minty.

    Are you talking about as food or as cage decor?
    I have no idea of the nutritional value of mint, nor have I seen it on any list of acceptable food sources.
    I wouldn't.

    Not to mention, I don't think its the least bit tropical. I remember it grows at my parents house in Buffalo.

    umm hmm...Lets go with Spearmint for example, It growns like crazy in almost any condition. And as a Plant Decor.

    And sorry about not tropical, Maybe I posted in wrong section? oops.

    And don't worry I HIGHLY doubt I will use it, If I someday ever do it would be potted and more of an experiment to see how the animal reacts to it maybe, but thats only if it we're safe.

    . anyways, I do want to get plants but mint isn't really on the list lol.
    Thanks for the replies =)

    I'm Just Quite Curious.

    I use to grow a bunch it wooden planters that hung off the outside of the deck, You don't really want to plant them in your yard directly for reasons You Probably know, it will kill anything in it's path and take over!. lol

    You can plant it in the groudn but you have to ring it with someting so that it doesn't spread. VERY invasive!
    But smells great when you mow over it!
