Fresh BIO Melissa Plant for rodents & rabbits!
The wonderful scent of this plant almost reminds you of a lemon ice cream! The name "melisse" is derived from the Greek word for the honeybee (Melitta). Because bees are attracted to this plant, lemon balm was often planted for bee houses. The beehives themselves were rubbed with the juice of the melissa plant, the antiseptic effect of the juice went antibacterial.
Already in ancient times the balm was used against a variety of diseases, including internally against colds, difficulty sleeping and stomach, intestinal or cardiovascular complaints, external in muscle tension.
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 deliciously of lemon. In short, all plants have their own special characteristics, 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 place 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 now, because a fresh plant in the residence is of course the ultimate natural decoration of the hamsterscaped residence. 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. This way you have a perennial in your home. 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.
