Default Decoration for a Beardie

Hi all

After many years of waiting/reading/and generally being very impatient lol I have finally got my first bearded dragon - a beautiful baby named Bob!

Now I have a quick question on decor for him ... Apart from the hides/rocks/branches etc. are there any plants - real or plastic - I can put in with him. When we first put him in we had some plastic ivy looking plant in but he tried to eat it, so I took it out as I would rather be safe than sorry.

I have read several different web pages that give different views, but thought I'd rather ask people who have more experience with beardies than I do, and who I know from past experience have a wealth of knowledge, so, any advice on real or plastic plants would be greatly received.

Thanks all

Lauren

I do use plastic plants in with my beardie but he is an adult. The only thing you need to watch (I think) is when you feed the beardie, crickets tend to hide in them.

My beardie is called Bob aswell

You can use many plastic plants but keep an eye on them. They usually try to eat but soon learn its not very tasty and stop
