I jut finished the cage.... The owner of this new cage is Yemen the female veiled who is around 7 months old... I have a hibiscus bush in there and lots of vines to climb on... There are two laying boxes in there, one is the pot with the hibiscus in it and the other is just a flower pot with moist dirt in it... The dimensions are 4x2x2 ft.... I am misting regularly and so far the temps are great.... Does anyone have any tips?

Looks good. Pretty much like my enclosure. Is light ale to get down far enough with the limbs being all the way at the top of the cage? I had a problem with light penetrating the canopy but you might be different.

The light reaches the bottom on one side but not on all sides... to solve that problem I have the cage by the window for some light... I know that glass blocks the UV, but at least she is able to see down there...

Yea. I just moved my cage to a window opening for that reason as well. Cham seems to like it a lot more and moves around more while next to the window. And I'm sure my umbrella tree enjoys the natural sunlight as well even though its coming through my window.
 
UVB doesn't really do much from what I've heard. I have a hibiscus in my cage and I have a uvb and full spectrum tube in the front and my incandescent for basking in the back and the best growth is under the incandescent bulb.
