    Im new to the site guys but not the hobby..Im a member at many forums about reptiles but none can answer my question..So i came here..lol
    I need to know if i can use some vines i found in the woods in my Veileds cage..
    the vines can get quite large and stretches from tree to tree like branches but its a seperate vine...It has bark and knotts on it...I live in south carolina if that helps..
    I have no clue wat kind of vine this is. here is what the bark looks like.

    This definitely looks like a ZeeZee Plant. I have a large, healthy ZeeZee but I only use it as a perch for my Veiled when cleaning her cage because I have not been able to find info about whether or not it's healthy when ingested, and my Veiled eats all the live plants I put in her cage.

    I had question I contacted local florist regarding a schefflera in the 4-5 foot range and they said they could get one sent in from California but at they height they where very fickle and was wondering if anyone else has had any trouble related to purchasing them around this height. They also recommended I go with a corn plant instead.

    Thank you,

    most plants come with perlite and you don't want your cham to eat it. Also there can be fertilizer in the soil and on the plant. You want to remove all chances of a bug (crickets mostly) eating the soil or digging around in the soil and contaminating your animal.

    Replanting also give the plant fresh clean dirt of your choice. It is a good idea to add sand to the dirt so water can flow through and not cause root rot. This is a good idea if you run a misting system.

    say goodbye to Hydrangeas

    Yes, the flower buds are particularly dangerous. They have cyanide-containing compounds. Best not to use any.
