Fresh BIO Plantain Plant for rodents & rabbits!
The Plantain is a robust native meadow plant and a valuable nutritional supplement for rodents, birds, turtles and reptiles. The animals appreciate the plantain not only for the high water content stored in the green parts, but the plant also provides richer plant fibers - which aid digestion. In addition, plantain provides your rodent with plenty of calcium and vitamin A.
All nutrients are well preserved in the fresh plant.
Nearly 200 varieties of plantain are known, but of course not all of them are equally well suited as a pet food plant. In contrast to the wild plants that grow along the road, the plants available at DRD Rodent Shop are guaranteed to be unencumbered.
Did you know?
Already in ancient times, but also in Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, the leaves of the plantain were applied to wounds and inflamed areas. Ancient doctors Galenos and Dioscurides have countless uses for the plantain in their writings.
WHICH PLANT TYPE FOR WHO?
All plants available with us are suitable for rodents. However, the plants all have their own special properties. The thyme plant smells wonderfully fresh and is good for the respiratory tract, the chamomile plant has a calming and antibacterial effect, the blood sorrel has a blood purifying effect and the balm is a source of vitamins and minerals, but also has a delicious lemon scent. In short, all plants have their own special properties, colors and shapes.
Cat grass is well known in cats. This grass species helps the cat to remove hairballs, but other animals such as birds and turtles also benefit from real natural plants.
HAMSTER SCAPING WITH REAL PLANTS
The heart of the hamster scaper is now beating faster, because a fresh plant in the enclosure is of course the ultimate natural decoration of the hamster-caped enclosure. We can actually go in all directions 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 carrots will then continue to grow in the ground. This way you have a perennial in the house. How quickly the animals eat the plant depends on the rodent species. Mice, Dwarf Hamsters and Hamsters often take it easy on the plants. Gerbils on the contrary, nibble at it faster.
You can also choose to place the plant in a pot in the enclosure when hamster scoping. An advantage of this is that it is easier to remove the plant from the accommodation to let it grow.
NATURAL BEHAVIOR THANKS TO THE FRESH PLANTS
The plants are therefore nutritious, healthy and also have a very nice decorative function, but there is something we should not forget. The plants promote the natural behavior of rodents. In the wild, rodents are mainly looking for food and rabbits are actually eating all day long. Herbivores (plant-eating animals) have a gastrointestinal system that can only work if new food is constantly being eaten. The new food pushes the old through the intestines, so it is also very important that rabbits have hay all day long.
In the wild, the animals choose their own diet, but a large part of the diet consists of fresh plant parts. These are chosen for their fiber, vitamins, minerals, trace elements, proteins, but also for their medicinal effect. Many plants are known for their health-promoting properties. The animals know that like no other and also in the wild they instinctively look for the right plant for an ailment.
Pay attention! The plants are intended for consumption for rodents, not as ornamental plants for the home. Some plant knowledge is required to keep the plants alive and beautiful.
