Fresh Organic Plantain Plant for rodents & rabbits!
Plantain is a robust native meadow plant and a valuable food supplement for rodents, birds, turtles and reptiles. The animals appreciate plantain not only because of the high water content stored in the green parts, but the plant also offers richer plant fibers - which promote digestion. Plantain also provides your rodent with a lot of calcium and vitamin A.
All nutrients are well preserved in the fresh plant.
Almost 200 species of plantain are known, but of course they are not all as 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 unencumbered.
Plantain is very suitable for:
- small rodents such as rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters and mice
Did you know?
Already in ancient times, but also in Romeo and Juliet of Shakespeare, the leaves of the plantain were applied to wounds and inflamed areas. The ancient doctors Galenos and Dioscurides have countless applications for plantain in their writings.
First of all a valuable tip: your rodent will most likely like this plant very much and will nibble it in no time. If that goes too fast, cut off a few leaves and put them in the cage, depending on the size and the pull of your rod.
The Plantain is very sturdy: even plants that completely freeze will grow again.
They hold the plantain can only be outside from April to October, in the winter in the room in a bright, sunny place. The south window is the most suitable.
Water abundant: the pot bale should never dry out completely! When the leaves wither, it is not too late - but it is high time to get water.
If you buy your plantain in the summer, they can continue to grow outside. But then the plants need a short adjustment period: do not put them in full sun for the first few days.
PAY ATTENTION! These plants are specially grown as a food plant. Only use plants of biological origin for your rodents. Only then are you assured of a safe food source for your animals.
MORE NUTRITION IN FRESH PLANTS
A big advantage of the plants is that the vitamins and minerals are better preserved in contrast to the dried plants. The fresh plants are therefore much richer in nutrients than the dried plants and herbs. It is good to know that the plants are in optimal conditions with us and that we consciously take care of them so that the plants remain rich. Our purchasing policy has also been adjusted so that we only have fresh plants in our range. We have high demands!
WHICH PLANT TYPE FOR WHO?
All plants that are available from us are suitable for rodents. However, the plants all have their own special characteristics. The thyme plant smells wonderfully fresh and is good for the respiratory tract, the camomile plant has a calming and antibacterial effect, the blood sorrel works to purify the blood and the melissa is a source of vitamins and minerals, but it also smells wonderfully of lemon. In short, all plants have their own special properties, colors and shapes.
Cat grass is well known among cats. This type of grass helps the cat remove hairballs, but other animals such as birds and turtles also benefit greatly from real natural plants.
THE PLANTS IN THE STAY OF YOUR RODENT
In terms of application, it varies per rodent. The plants can be placed in their entirety in the accommodation, but can also be offered in pieces. In the latter case, cut off pieces of the leaf and give it to your rodents. If you put the plant in its entirety in the enclosure, make sure that there is at least 3 cm of the plant. Remove the plant from the area to allow it to grow again. The plant can also be placed occasionally as a snack during the stay, for example fifteen minutes per day.
HAMSTERSCAPING WITH REAL PLANTS
The heart of the hamsterscaper is going to beat harder, because a fresh plant in the accommodation is of course the ultimate natural decoration of the hamsterscaped accommodation. We can actually go in all directions here depending on the soil coverage. If you use a "soil" like soil cover such as humus, you could choose to plant the plants directly in the soil. The carrots will then continue to grow in the soil. In this way you have a perennial in the residence. How quickly the animals eat the plant depends on the rodent species. Mice, Dwarf hamsters and Hamsters often take things slower with the plants. On the contrary, gerbils nibble on it faster.
With hamsterscapen you can also choose to place the plant in a pot in the enclosure. An advantage of this is that it is easier to remove the plant from the area to allow it to grow.
NATURAL CONDUCT SHOW THROUGH THE FRESH PLANTS
The plants are therefore nutritious, healthy and also have a very beautiful decorative function, but there is something else 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. Herbovores (plant-eating animals) have a gastrointestinal tract that can only work if new food is constantly eaten. The new diet 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 food, but a large part of the food consists of fresh plant parts. These are chosen for their fibers, 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.
