The Bearded Dragon is a popular and rewarding pet and are relatively easy to care for, but they do have some exacting dietary needs at every stage of their life. Originating from the arid woodlands and deserts of central Australia, it spends much of its waking hours foraging for food. Being an omnivore the Bearded Dragon has wide ranging diet which includes insects, small lizards and mammals, but fruit, flowers, and other plant material are an essential part of their diet. As Bearded Dragons mature from Juveniles to adults their diet should include more plants.
Most shop-brought salad is low in roughage and can be nutritionally poor and while collecting wild plants can be time-consuming and at certain times of the year, difficult. You can never be sure that they are free of insecticides, herbicides or other contaminants such as lead from exhaust fumes, or even that you have identified them correctly and have not collected something poisonous.
The wild plant mix contained in the ProRep feed growing kit has been selected for Bearded Dragons. The mix of annual and perennial plants can be grown for captive bred reptiles to help provide a year round source of nutritious plant leaves that gives Bearded Dragons a natural source of essential nutrients to aid healthy growth. They are also suitable for other herbivorous reptiles.
The leaves are harvested to mix with other food and avoid the use of unsuitable shop bought greens. Harvested trays will re-grow for multiple use. This kit contains all of the equipment and seed that you will need to grow 4 trays of plants and can be re-used with the ProRep Beardie Seed Refill Pack available from retailers nationwide. The refill pack contains enough seed for 20 trays of plants but can be used to sow an outdoor enclosure.
