Among the few plants listed, what is your favorite plant for indoor chameleon enclosures?
Is Jasmine Safe for the chams? It sounds like a good Idea.DrewNYC said:i have great luck with them all, does anyone use jasmine? they flower everytime you trim them, good strong bark stems. give it a try, when they flower the whole apartment smells great!
I am not sure yet. We have some conflicting info. The toxicity would either be classified as toxic or caution on this site. I would like to get some more info or hear from some qualified members before listing it. The berries and sap seem to be the concern. Whatever the classification, I personally would not use this with plant eating species or specific chameleons that frequently eat plants.So this would go under a caution type plant along with Pothos and Ficus.
When I got my Ficus tree, it looked like a Ficus Bush. I did the Bonzai thing on it and thined it out. It looks more like a tree now, plenty of room for my juvinile Veiled to move in, yet enough coverage for him to hide. I think it might have helped the Tree. It is sprouting new growth everywhere. I am hopeing by doing the Bonzai thing I can maintain the highth of the plant in the enclosure and make its gerth grow? Anyone else do this with their trees and whats the out come?lowendfrequency said:I'm the only weirdo that voted for schefflera. They grow like weeds and have thick yet nicely spaced branches. Ficus is too dense for large chameleons like veileds and panthers to navigate their way through easily imo. Also, the cupped leaves and umbrella shape hold water well, and the very center where all the leafs stalks meet usually gathers a huge drop of water that my chams love to drink. I use schefflera for all my species, even the brevs.
