The whole point of Strands product and enclosures is not having to use thumb tacts and I don’t know why I’m having such a difficult time with it to be honest.You might already know this but you can use thumb tacks to secure the end of branches to the screen (for horizontal branches). Also if you're worried about the weight of potting plans on your screen or logs, you can buy some little hook screws to screw into the frame of the cage. you'll have to drill a hole in the frame first.
That’s smart @JacksJill I wished I had thought of that way before I installed the ledges because now where I installed them is making it a little more difficult to visualize and placement. Maybe one day I can be as good as Bill Strand or Dale Tamura...as well as the chameleon community that are veterans of the enclosure building process. The people on this feed as well.
Bamboo can be used but you have to sand it with really coarse sandpaper. Like 60 or 80 grit...As somebas you know I had bamboo for mounting plants on the sides then I got to thinking what if these chameleons decide to climb on the bamboo used to mount the plants. So since they were super smooth I took them out due to the fact Chameleons are unpredictable and will climb and potentially slip on the bamboo for the plant mounting.
I generally like to add the branches around the plants I am using. It just seems easier to me to see the pathways this way. Start with the plants, add the vines, add the chameleon and see how much he hates all your hard work ...The sticks I find are all holly tree limbs and they really don’t come together like I want
