Multiple live plants with live moss, I also have real and fake vines as well. I honestly just want to know if it’s good enough for my little dude!!! It’s my first custom built cage, it’s enclosure is roughly 4ft x 4ft x 3ft

So much room for your guy!! Minimum size is 2x2x4 so that’s awesome! I would suggest removing the colored lights and stick with plain white as the colored ones can hurt their eyes. If you want, I can give you the form for a full husbandry review.

That would be amazing, I always have room to learn more about this subject, the colored light is a plant light, would I be safe to remove said light and my plants remain healthy?

I’m the wrong one to ask about plants 😅 between my brown thumb and my chams habit of munching plants, they don’t live long in my enclosure 😂 here’s the form. Copy, paste and fill in as much as you can. I’m sure others will be along soon that can help with the plants.

Hi and welcome. :) The colored lights have already been mentioned. What type and strength of uvb are you using? The size of your enclosure is great! The artificial plants will need to go. Our veiled friends enjoy nibbling their plants, so artificial ones pose a high risk for a bowel obstruction if eaten. If you place a pothos plant down low or on the floor of your enclosure and have it growing upwards, the leaves will grow very large, which is super cool.
