this will teach you a the way to prep cut and preserve collard greens and mustard greens for bearded dragons. my first instructable.
Step 1: Get a Nice Warm/hot Bath in the Sink Going.
your going to want to throw your greens into the sink with the water and stir em around for about a good i would say 2-5 minutes most stores do NOT clean their produce leaving dirt and god knows what on it. so its good that you take all the stuff off before giving it to your lizards!
Step 2: Cutting Out the Stem for Easy Storage.
next your going to want to cut out the stem from the whole leaf. just the stem. as its shown below. then if your like me and keep super king worms in the house i like to gut load them with the stems to not waste anything.
Step 3: Preping for Surgery Sir!
so by now you have a mustard green lead that looks much like the one below just like a leaf but you know missing the ENTIRE CENTER!
then your gonna grab that and roll it into a a sort of roll i really dont know how to explain it but um just grab an end and start rollin'.
Step 4: So Youve Got Your Little Leaf Rolled Up Nice a Snug!
and then the fun happens the way i cut it is down the middle and then in small section horizontally.
Step 5: Fill Er Up.
so then you grab the container your using to store your greens in the fridge you want to use something breathable if you have a spare net around the house that is ideal i did not so i used the glamorous cactus cooler carton! you just repeat the steps before this and fill it up to the brim MIST IT AT LEAST TWICE A DAY! your greens will stay fresh at least a week. before they start to wither.
Step 6: Happy Lizards!
And that concludes it! there is your guide to happy (fed) lizards handle them regularly and they will love you back for it!
