Product description

Fresh Organic Thyme Plant for rodents and rabbits!

rodent herbs friendly to bees and butterflies The aroma alone of the Thyme herb plant does the respiratory tract of humans and animals good. The delicious thyme scent smells refreshing and beneficial. Thyme was already used by the Greeks and Romans for lung diseases, rheumatism, paralysis, stomach cramps, growths, headaches, colic and nervous disorders. The Thyme plant is still used to this day to support the airways. Recent scientific research has even shown that thyme has a positive effect on the brain.

100% Organic
Specially grown as a food plant for animals
All nutrients are well preserved in the fresh plant

In addition, Thyme has a stomach strengthening and blood purifying effect. We also come across Thyme a lot in cough syrups and it contains a high content of vitamin K and iron. Thyme contains the positive thymol. This phytonutrient has a positive effect on the percentage of healthy omega 3 fatty acids in the brain, kidneys and heart.

HAMSTERSCAPING WITH REAL PLANTS

The heart of the hamsterscaper 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 them.

With hamsterscapes 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 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 fiber, 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 for consumption by 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 them to the Chinchilla or Degu. An exception to this is the Thyme plant , which itself is quite dry, so it can be fed to Chinchillas and Degus per small twig.

Vast een heel leuk plantje, maar ik heb de verkeerde binnen gekregen. De bloedzuring. Kwam wel goed verpakt aan.

Heel leuk plantje! Ik ben erachter gekomen dat mijn konijnen deze heel erg lekker vinden. Ik zet het tijm plantje af en toe in het verblijf zodat ze kunnen eten dan dan haal ik deze er weer uit. Ik vind het wel leuk dat ik naast gedroogde tijm nu ook verse tijm aan de dieren kan geven. Ik heb geen groen vingers maar het gaat tot nu toe uitstekend met het plantje, niet te veel water geven is belangrijk
