I bought a spider plant (chlorophytum) today thinking I would be able to grow it in the house and to feed it to Topsy during the winter months when fresh greens are not so readily available. I would just like to check that this plant is safe to give him. Can anyone advise please?
Thanks again.
The forum is great it's so nice and reassuring to be able ask a question and get people's views gained through their own personal experience. Thank you to everyone who replies.

Safe, although mine doesn't touch it so it's a great plant for the enclosure :-)

Yes it's fine, but don't allow them to eat any part that was in the pot when you bought it, only new growth, as it will likely have been sprayed with toxic pesticides ;)
