dont put any live plants in cages beacause thy hav toxins on them and could kill them
sorry but who told you this this is coumpletly uncorrect animals benifit from live plants theyre are so many safe plants out there fig plant are a great example people keep chams on ficus plants and that is quite common practice not all plants have toxins if they all did how would anything survive on earth if you look at food chain what does pretty much every1 start with?

Stop giving out crap information. You said yesterday you dont put beardies on sand because it gets caught in their beard and it might kill them. :devil:

OP - as everyone has said don't use ivy. Ive no idea about rough neck monitors, you could put in some mother in laws tongue (i think there called) and some nice bromeliads?

I've used bromeliads, dracaena, chlorophytum, small palm species (i think it might be Trachycarpus sp.), ferns, ficus
