Banksia integrifolia, Banksia Serrata, Corymbia Erythrophloia, Corymbia Ficifolia, Corymbia Gummiferia, Eucalyptus Pilularis, Eucalyptus Pyrocarpa - to name a few!

Also - Rose petals and hips are a big time fave!!!

Make sure that if you buy a plant from a nursery, you wait at least 3 months before letting your glider endulge to allow time for any pesticides to work their way out of the plant! If you grow them at your home, make sure you haven't used the stuff & always wash thouroughly!

Dandilions both the flowers and the leaves are a favorite too. Just wash very well and don't use if any herbicides have been sprayed in the yard.

I am growing these: Eucalyptus Bridgesiana (ordered from www.australiaplants.com), Corymbia Citridora (ordered from www.australiaplants.com), Galla Apple (taken out of my very own Gala Apple <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> ), Melaleuca Alternifolia (ordered from Potato Rock Nursery, CA - ebay seller) And I will order the Acacia Mearnsii soon - but Windmill Nursery requires seed orders to be at least $10 before shipping, so I have to wait until there's something else I want too as the Acacia Mearnsii packs are only $3 each!

I'm growing some bamboo for my gliders too chew on. My dad thinks I'm nuts and insist that I keep it under 4 feet, lol.

I ordered from australiaplants.. and just planted 2 weeks ago... seeds for 3 types of eucalyptus and the acacia mearnsii... they all were things I had read in various posts here that were safe for gliders... I did a lot of reading before ordering.... I figure we'll let the plants get to be a decent size before I let the gliders into them. Since we won't even have our glider babies until 4th of July or so that won't be hard. Also- I bought some bamboo sticks to grow as well, and figure I'll let them climb on them. If I discover they like chewing the leaves I will buy a bunch of the 1$ sticks and just let them play on one at a time.... they don't need to be very big... I have a few bigger sticks they can climb on too...
