Fresh BIO Melissa Plant for rodents & rabbits!
Season Product: Only available in spring and summer
The delicious smell of this plant almost reminds you of a lemon ice cream! The name "melissa" is derived from the Greek word for the honeybee (Melitta). Because bees are attracted to this plant, lemon balm was often planted in front of bee houses. The beehives themselves were rubbed with the juice of the balm plant, the antiseptic effect of the juice was antibacterial.
Lemon balm is known to have a relaxing effect.
✔ Promotes digestion and helps with cramps

WHAT PLANT FOR WHOM?
All plants available from 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 acid has a purifying effect on the blood and the melissa is a source of vitamins and minerals, but also smells wonderfully of lemon. In short, all plants have their own special properties, colors and shapes.
Cat grass is very well known among cats. This type of grass helps the cat to remove hairballs, but other animals such as birds and turtles also benefit greatly from real natural plants.
HAMSTERSCAPING WITH REAL PLANTS
The hamsterscaper's heart will now beat faster, because a fresh plant in the enclosure is of course the ultimate natural decoration of the hamsterscaped 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.
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.
Pay attention! 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.
Leuk voor in het verblijf en het ruikt lekker.
