I have finally finished my tortoise table. Its still a work in progress. I need to add some plants. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. What kind of plants and how do I add them?

Thanks

Do you plant it directly into the substrate or leave it in some other container? Do they need direct sunlight?
Thanks

I like to leave the plants in their small pots with the lip just barely above the substrate so that I can water the small pot and not the whole habitat. The plants do well in bright light...I mean BRIGHT light. If you notice them getting leggy and reaching for the light, then your light isn't bright enough for plants.

Be thinking about a new table for your little one. This one is pretty small.

I have spider plants & have them right in the table with out pots. I think I like the idea of pots better!
