    Can anyone tell me what this is??? And maybe how I'm supposed to care for it? I got it as a Christmas gift and I'm plant challenged without being at a disadvantage of not knowing what this is...

    Great thanks! Based on a quick google search, I'm thinking I can probably plant it in my Crestie tank - it has decent humidity and I use a florescent grow light during the day so as to not increase the temps in the tank. (The house temps are perfect for the Crested's)


    Hmmm.. I guess I need to know if it is poisonous... I think there is a list somewhere -- I'll go check....

    Here is the link that Schlegelbagel posted:
    Edible and Harmful Plants

    It's not listed on ANY list - good or bad.

    I'll need to put it where it will get the moisture it needs or I will kill it. Although, I'm likely to kill it anyway....:rolleyes:

    - but the Crested Gecko's tank has good humidity (not too much), or do you think that it would be better in a Poison Dart Frog tank, which would have LOTS of humidity? (Not that I'm necessarily getting one any time soon or anything.... :-")

    I really am plant challenged... my cacti are dead and dried up into interesting sculptures (which is why I haven't taken them off the shelf - they look cool, even dead!)

    Well darn -- BUT THANKS!!

    BTW, where did you find that list? It wasn't on the other thread....

    I'll just keep it in its pot and hope for the best, and compost its remains when the inevitable happens :rolleyes:
