              I have 2 local exotic pet stores near me that both sell a variety of plants so I printed this page & every time I go to buy a plant I check this list to be safe. You can go to a local nursery as well. If you don't want to use day light bulbs I suggest getting low light plants. Also, I would advise against any dessert plants since you mist your cresties cage daily. It is probably to wet for then.

                I also have never heard of a disaster story about crested geckos with philodendron...but I think that's because we all generally avoid using that plant with our geckos. Its good that you haven't had any problems with it, but don't let that give you any illusions. Philodendron is toxic. While I haven't heard any crestie-related stories, I have heard plenty of "nightmare" stories involving cats, dogs, iguanas, bearded dragons, water dragons, etc. I personally don't think its worth the risk. I also haven't heard any tales of horror with the use of Croton, Ivy, or Money Tree with crested geckos, but knowing that they are generally found on the "dangerous" list & that there have been bad reactions to them by other reptiles is enough to keep me clear of them.

                Pothos is safe...and just as hardy, beautiful, and inexpensive.

                  Ive got a bromeliad, dracaena, and a tillandsia on a piece of driftwood in my planted tank. My gecko loves hiding in the dracaena's leaves during the day, and it has held up amazingly well.
