    No, this is a very bad idea.

    Guinea pigs are very attracted to eat things that are not edible. It's kind of funny, they have this odd attraction to plastic bags.

    It's highly likely the guinea pig will eat the plant, and get very ill. It can cause intestinal blockage, which could lead to death.

    Some people put decorative vines around the outside of the cage, at the very top. As long as it's up high enough so they can't reach it, it would work.

    NO IT IS NOT! Even if they can't smell it, that won't prevent them from having a bite at it.
