That sounds like a needless amount of work! It's more natural for her (an easier for you!) to get her at least one nice live plant and let her drink from it naturally, like a wild chameleon would. The benefit is that live plants raise the humidity a great deal in the cage, which is only a benefit to her.once a day I hold up a leave to her mouth and mist the leaf and she drinks from it. I am however considering adding some real plants to help out my humidity.
I'm on the same page as Brad. I think the real plants are just a lot more...well, REAL! They offer a more realistic environment and there's the added benefit that they should help keep moisture/humidity higher, (though I struggle with keeping it high in Rico's cage I wonder what it would be without live plants,) but I did use some fake plants primarily for asthetic but also functional reasons. I wanted the back of Rico's cage to be visually appealing while providing him with additional elements to explore and climb in so I drapped fake viney plants, Exo Terro Jungle Plants, down the back of the cage so that they fall behind the real plants rising up from the bottom and create a kind of curtain. It works well for Rico's setup and I think it looks nice as well because it really give a tropical forrest-like backdrop that would be possible but difficult to achieve with live plants, IMHO.You will see the occasional artificial vine in pictures of my enclosures.
I use them to fill spaces and add cover where real plants just won't go.
99% real plants here though for all the obvious reasons.
