Hello! I'm hoping to get a Sugar Glider soon and so I'm doing as much research as possible! I'm into live plants for purifying the air and general mood improvement. I use live plants for my fish, and get plants for my cats. I've noticed people get artificial plants for their sugar gliders, so I'm wondering if you could get live ones? And if so, what are some easy to care for plants that they'd like?

Current Research, Studies & Resources

Loc: Tennessee These seem to be pretty popular! You keep saying A sugar glider I've noticed, your glider will be lonely without a companion imagine being raised by a wolf pack, you would never be able to speak in your own tongue and there would always be a communication barrier as you would never be able to learn wolf and they would never be able to speak human.

In order to have live plants in a glider cage, should meet the following criteria:

It must be glider safe-leaves, bark, and sap.

If it is safe, don't get too attached to the plant. It will be shredded and eaten over time.

The dirt in the pot must be safely covered and no drain off saucer. Also the dirt should be 100% organic, no fertilizers. Expect pee and poo on branches, unless washed, it will start to smell.

I would recomend branches from glider safe trees, eucalyptus, apple, red bud... that way as they shred, they can be replaced.

Inhale the future...
Exhale the past...
