Need help finding right foods

For the cage this will work for now. Just make sure your husbandry is on point :) I have any idea for the cage do you think flipping it so it has more height than width would work or no?
I don’t think so sadly. Also these are the plants I got! They are chameleon safe and I will put screen and big pebbles so he can’t eat the dirt. yes the pebbles are big so he can’t eat them.

Ok good I’d try gettting a pothos those are great too. I’ll put a link to some more plants. Also if there is a nursery near by I’d check it out sometimes the prices are better 😉

Great job... And you have the correct UVB lighting now too?
Did you get the calcium without D3 as well?

If you want to do an updated help form we can look through and see if anything is missing? I know everyone threw a ton of info at you at once and it can get confusing.

You will use the calcium with D3 two times a month and the multivitamin two times a month. You will rotate these two week to week at one feeding. Then the calcium without D3 you just got will be used at every feeding when you do not use the other two. These are lightly dusted on all the feeders before you give them to the cham. Does that make sense?

When you get the fixture respond to me and I can help make sure your distances are correct with the fixture and bulb type you got.

Then you can do an updated picture as well just to double check everything. :)

What size is yours hun? Take a measuring tape and give us the dimensions. You have a wider format so it can make up for the height as long as its up on a table to give it the feel of being higher.

All the fake floral plants have to come out though. These are silk and an impaction risk. They are not made to hold up to a veiled trying to eat them. You can attach them on the outside but they are too risky on the inside of the cage.

Hi sorry I’m not sure if I already responded to this I forgot. but I did get those live really big plants and then I think I have a 30” by 30” by 18” and the cage is on an old vanity of mine so it is pretty high and don’t worry I took the mirror off so he won’t get scared of his reflection.

Ok well your width is really good and will help make up for the lack of height. Just continue to make sure your enclosure is set up correctly for him.

Why is saran wrap covering the bottom front? It’s better to cover the upper part so you can have a chimney effect in the cage. I also wouldn’t use tape either
 
No fake plants! This’ll do until you can upgrade! Is your humidity low, or do you only use the humidifier at night? (try so that the tube doesn’t go in the cage as much) What’s the long tube for with the container? Also watch out for the lamp make sure the temp is 80°f max so this doesn’t happen (picture) maybe raise it up?
I have 2 fakes plants Neptune the chameleon uses what I’m using and I was really struggling with the humidity the only way it would stay up is with the tube like that. Also the tube is my big dripper. Should I switch to a 75 watt bulb instead of an 100
