    Planted garter snake enclosure?

    Hello! I am wanting to do a planted tank for my garter snake, and i had a few questions:

    What types of plants are good for them? Do they like groundcover, vines, trees, grasses, tropical types plants, etc?
    Should i get a grow type plant light to keep the plants alive, or would the display light be all that is needed?
    Should i do like 1 plant or do they like more a dense jungle?

    I would absolutely love to see pictures of anyone who has done something like this. Thanks!

    You don't need plant lights, the terrarium light will be fine. It's good to get hardy plants that are tough and don't require heavy care requirements. I am a big fan of pothos, zzplant and dracaena plants. They are all seemingly unkillable and survive even when I forget to water them, plus they can handle garters climbing on them.
