    I was wondering if anybody has any suggestions on some safe sturdy plants for these guys. I am definitely gonna be using some pothos.
    Just cause i use them in all of my enclosures i was thinking of possibly using some difenbachia.
    I know it is toxic but it is only in the sap and the snake wont be munching on the plants in the enclosure.

    The enclosure is only 27 inches tall 24 inches wide and 24 inches long so the plants cant be too large

    Wondering... if the snake breaks a leaf/branch/whatever of the difenbachia - wouldn't that cause the sap to run out and possibly cause problems? Or is it just toxic if ingested?

    Sorry, can't help on the 'what you COULD use' part of your question - as I'm not sure of something that would support the weight of a snake....

    It's the sap from diffenbachia tht is the problem if it is ingested.

    You might try a small ficus tree. they are pretty tough and will take trimming into bonsai proportions.

    If you can find some bamboo, it's great for creating your own climbing apparatus.
    Might be some nurseries that carry the live plants as well.
