Product description

Fresh Organic Chamomile Plant for rodents & rabbits!

rodent herbs friendly to bees and butterflies Chamomile is an ancient medicinal plant, mainly used for stomach and intestinal complaints (flatulence), inflammation (mainly the oral cavity and gums) and for convulsive resolution. All plant parts have a strong, pleasant, characteristic chamomile scent. The active ingredients are the essential oils, which are mainly formed in the flower basket, in smaller quantities but also in the herb. Chamomile flowers from May to September.

100% Organic
Specially grown as a food plant for animals
All nutrients are well preserved in the fresh plant
Ideal for Hamsterscaping & Gerbilscaping !

HAMSTERSCAPING WITH REAL PLANTS

The heart of the hamsterscaper will now beat faster, because a fresh plant in the enclosure is of course the ultimate natural decoration of the hamsterscaping enclosure . We can actually go in all directions with this, depending on the ground cover. If you use a "soil"-like ground cover such as humus , you could choose to plant the plants directly in the ground. The roots will then continue to grow in the soil. This way you have a perennial in the enclosure. How quickly the animals eat the plant depends on each rodent species. Mice, Dwarf Hamsters and Hamsters often take it easy with the plants. Gerbils, on the contrary, are more likely to nibble on them.

With hamsterscapes you can also choose to place the plant in a pot in the enclosure. An advantage of this is that the plant can be removed more easily from the enclosure to allow it to grow. Watering is best with a plant sprayer .

NATURAL BEHAVIOR THANKS TO THE FRESH PLANTS

The plants are therefore nutritious, healthy and also have a very nice decorative function, but there is one more thing we should not forget. The plants promote the natural behavior of rodents. In the wild, rodents are mainly foraging for food and rabbits are actually eating throughout the day. Herbivores (plant-eating animals) have a gastrointestinal tract that can only work if new food is constantly eaten. The new food pushes the old through the intestines, as it were, which is why it is very important that rabbits have hay available all day long.

In the wild, the animals choose their own food, but a large part of the food consists of fresh plant parts. These are chosen for their fibres, vitamins, minerals, trace elements, proteins, but also for their medicinal properties. Many plants are known for their health-promoting properties. The animals know this better than anyone and also in the wild they instinctively look for the right plant for an ailment.

Instructions for use Plants

The plants are intended as consumption for the rodents, not as ornamental plants for the home. Some plant knowledge is required to keep the plants alive and beautiful.

The plants may be eaten by all rodents and rabbits.

Chinchillas and Degus preferably only in dried form. Pick the leaves off the plant, let them dry for a day and then give to the Chinchilla or Degu. An exception to this is the Thyme plant , which is quite dry by itself, so it can be fed to Chinchillas and Degus per small twig.

Super leuke, mooie en lekkere plant mijn hamster vond het super lekker. Jammer dat hij alleen al met 2 weken kaal was gegeten.

Het kamilleplantje was wat aande kleine kant. Geeft niet, met wat liefde groeit alles. Helaas bleek de kamille zo bij te zijn dat er een slak was meegeleverd die zijn buikje heeft volgegeten

De plantjes kwamen netjes aan, ze waren goed verpakt. Onze Syrische hamster vindt het wel interessant, en eet er ook af en toe wat van. Ons rusje doet er tot nu toe niets mee.

Hamster vind de biologische eetbare planten erg leuk en lekker! Daarnaast wordt de plant mooi en netjes opgestuurd!
