Hi everyone, I've searched through this forum & couldn't find the names of these plants.

1. Is this Antigonon/ coral vine? Is it safe?

2. I searched through Indonesian website & I found this plant's latin name : Bidens Pilosa L.
Is if safe?

Welcome!

Okay, wow your coral vine is amazing; we've been trying to grow ours for years and our Russian just tramples it to death. It's a knot weed and safe IMO.

All the bidens are safe.

Mimosa is iffy to me. Pods that might be poisonous to tortoises that many tortoises ignore but I wouldn't feed it intentionally, certainly not to a baby.

Thank you so much for the quick reply, Rosemary!


Glad to hear that! I'm glad most of these are safe.

I actually have some more plants, please help me identify it 😀🙏.
1. Is this Ageratum? Is it safe? 20220803_100757.jpg

I couldn't say, other than that ageratum isn't native to your area. Doesn't seem very fluffy though.

The bottom one is some kind of thistle or dandelion relative, safe.

Hopefully someone knows what the first plant is.
