Some plants are toxic if eaten, but safe if just used for decoration (basically for the geckos to sit on). Since cresties don't normally eat the plants, you can 'get away' with a bigger selection of plants than you could with a vegetarian such as bearded dragon.
Here are some links you can try. Any plant that's toxic if eaten but can be touched, should be safe. If the toxic part is beyond reach of your geckos (such as roots in a well covered substrate), you could use it. If the toxic or irritating part is easily reached (like spines or hairs such as in nettle (which you wouldn't use, but it's an example)), forget about it.
