Plants from Australia

Lizards Home > Library > Plants
 
There is not a very wide variety of plants from Australia that are suitable and recommended for lizards.

Eco-System: Rain Forest

Blechnum (Blechnum gibbum)
This plant is hard to take care of as it constantly needs water, but is damaged if placed into water.

Ficus (Ficus rubiginosa)
The Ficus is a ground plant and like the Blechnum above, is damaged if placed into water.

Screw-pine (Pandanus veitchii)
This plant is only suitable for large habitats, as they grow quite large. The Screw-pine should be one of your last choices though, as they have sharp thorns.

Staghorn Fern (Platycerium alcicorne)
This plant also needs a lot of water, and grows very large. The Staghorn fern should only be used in very large habitats.

Eco-System: Desert

False Aralia (Dizygotheca elegantissima)
This plant is very good for large terrestrial lizards. The stalks are weak, and are not a good idea to use for arboreal lizard species.

Kangaroo Vine (Cissus antarctica)
This vine is perfect for all types of lizards, especially arboreal species.

Silk Oak (Grevillea robusta)
The Silk Oak grows close to the ground, and gets very large.
