Default A question about natural supplies...

Hello everyone! I must confess that I am not a hamster owner just yet. I've always treated animals and animal care very responsibly and seriously and having the intentions to adopt a syrian hamster soon, my attitude remains the same.
In that regard I need to draw from some of your knowledge hamster lovers! I fell in love with naturalistic hamster cages and I intend to build one for my future syrian. I have to say I have done some research on the matter with little to no success. So my question is... I'm aware that I can forage for some things from outside that are safe to use in hamster cages, like stones and rocks, wood sticks and branches, but how about tree leaves, herbs, flowers, plant roots(I have a list of safe plants), taken from nature, like the woods or my back yard? I also know that moss is controversial, soil also... but I saw that Niteangel sells moss for small animals that says it's hand picked from the woods... can I forage for some and dry it and sanitize it, would other natural materials from the woods be safe to put in a natural themed enclosure, properly sanitized, of course?
Lol, that turned out long, thank you for reading and thanks to all replies!
