Exactly! I'd rather throw $100 down the drain than have my chameleon get sick again. Another vet visit+cleaning again+cost of medication+administration of the drugs+not to mention how hard it's gotta be on our poor little Chams.I did...even though I had JUST purchased several plants for her 2 days before. I just don't want to keep battling this because I didn't wash the plants well enough. It just makes sense that if you have to use such harsh chemicals to clean the cage that just washing a plant could possibly reinfect them. It might be fine, but I just didn't want to take chances.
