No, bettas are physically incapable of digesting plant matter. However some people like to give their bettas a deshelled boiled pea if their bloated.

I agree with Prettylittlefishy. Bettas are carnivorous.

I third that. Very bad idea. A Betta's digestion system is not designed to handle plant matter so it should be avoided at all cost.
