4 months of plant growth.
Love your setups! Can't wait to redo Carly's enclosure. Turning the bonus room into my reptile/fun room.
 
That looks amazing!!! What type of branches are you using? The white cover for the back also?? What is that called or where can I find that?

Thanks! So these are hybrid cages... The material is a pressed pvc board.. Like what they use for signs. 1/8 of an inch thick.
All my branches were from a neighbors tree that he trimmed back. Non sap producing but I do not know what kind exactly.
 
How did you get the pvc board into the actual screen window frames? Im trying to setup a DIY cage like this but I cant figure out a nice way to attach the pvc boards to the frame, it would be perfect if the actual track the spline goes into faced inward instead of how it is for normal screening?

So the two cages on the right are Dragon Strand Hybrid Enclosures. They are designed so that the PVC and frame are entirely one unit.

The cage on the far left is a Dragon Strand that I modified to match the others. But as you said no way to slide in the PVC due to the frame being a different type for screen. So I ended up pulling all screen and then on the outside I clamped the PVC and attached it with 1/4 inch stainless steel screws about every 6 inches or so. I used a drill to drill out the PVC covering the main holes for putting the frame pieces back together.

Ok hmm, im trying to figure out how bill from dragon strand is doing it there has to be some frame that hes using to just slide in the pvc sheets? Or does it look like hes drilling them to hold them in place as well?
