Of course, there are variations of reptile plants available in the market; there are live ones and artificial ones. Reptile plant selection should be thorough and it should be ideal in co-habituating with your pet. The benefit of having to keep live plants includes its decorative quality. It also creates hiding spots for your pet and can serve as food in case you forgot to feed your pet. Kidding aside, live plants also can become costly to maintain. While, the advantage of having an artificial plant is that it has all the benefits of having a live plant in your tank. You can also save time not worrying about the maintenance of preserving its beauty and purpose. But, keeping an artificial plant may expose your pet to various chemicals, or plastic content that may be hazardous to their health.
