Re: Cyrtomium - Holly Fern OK in an enclosure?

Hi Nina, another question! Our little 'Strider' (calling him that until my son comes up with a name!) has dug himself into the soil outside for the last 2 nights. He has an indoor greenhouse enclosure to go to, but chooses to be outdoors. It's been about 12C at night - should we put him in his indoo...

The lamp is on a timer for 8am - 9.30am to warm him/her up after waking. I'll get a zapper thermometer to check t...

Re: Cyrtomium - Holly Fern OK in an enclosure?

Cyrtomium - Holly Fern OK in an enclosure?

Hi, I've just built a home for a 2 yr old Herman. It is an outdoor enclosure connected to a greenhouse with a tortoise 'house'. I want some structure/shade plants and bought a Holly Fern and a French Lavender. Neither are listed on TT. Are they safe to plant in the enclosure? Thanks
