Plant Hanger Idea for Dragon Ledges


Established Member
Wanted to share something I tried in a new enclosure:

I just upgraded Paisley's cage to a Large Clearside Dragon Strand (which is fantastic, btw). While planning the layout of the new cage, I researched optioned for hanging/suspending plants and after becoming frustrated with the options I found, I came up with something neat and inexpensive:

Paint Cups!

I picked up a few of these at my local Home Depot for ~$4 each and they work really well on the Dragon Ledges. On the PVC material, the end of the Handy Paint Cup sticks out a little, but it doesn't seem to put too much strain on the material. On the screen side, the overhang is barely noticeable.

My local Home Depot didn't have this variety so I can't vouch for it, but they look as though they would work as well:

I drilled some drainage holes in the bottom of the cups so I wouldn't water-log the plants, though I suspect a good drainage layer would be a good addition, too, depending on enclosure humidity levels and/or misting schedule.

I may experiment with painting these or covering them partially with expanding foam and coco fiber for a slightly less artificial look.

Hope this helps. :)
