Pansies in CWD's Terrarium?

    I can't find pansies on any toxic plants lists, so I was wondering if that means they're safe?

    Note: I actually don't know if pansies are tropical, but my lizard is so I put this under tropical plants

    Pansies are safe. They are even on the list of edible flowers for human consumption.
    However if you are talking about planting them in the dragon tank they probably won't last.

    why do you not think this will last? Are there any plants that would be able to thrive in an enclousre? The UVA & UVB Bulbs should give it the needed light spectum to grow

    They are too fragile and he'll probably eat them!

    Pothos is a very sturdy, fast growing tropical plant.

    Pansies are not a tropical plant. They actually like cooler weather. They tend to just die back in the heat of a summer.
    And there is more to light requirements than spectrum. Most flowering plants require high intensity light to thrive.
    You might look into small trees like ficus and hibiscus.

    I was just wondering because I received some as a gift. They ended up wilting last night, but thank you for all the information :)
