Product description

Fresh Organic Plantain Plant for Rodents & Rabbits!

rodent herbs friendly to bees and butterflies The plantain is a robust native meadow plant and a valuable food 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 offers richer plant fiber - which aids digestion. In addition, plantain provides your rodent with a lot of calcium and vitamin A.

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

Nearly 200 species 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, as well as in Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, the leaves of the plantain were applied to wounds and inflamed areas. The ancient physicians Galenos and Dioscurides count numerous uses for the plantain in their writings.

HAMSTERSCAPING WITH REAL PLANTS

The hamsterscaping's heart 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 soil 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 it.

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.

Mijn goudhamster vind het erg lekker. Kwam goed verpakt aan. Plantje moet je een dag geven en dan zijn de bladeren weer goed.
