    plan to purchase a cham

    Hi everyone!
    I want to buy a cham! It will be my first experience. I decided with the cage.
    I want to ask about the plants and light.
    What are the most suitable plants to put in the cage with cham?
    Can I use the LED panels (as for fish tank) for my future cham?
    thanks

    Sorry, I'm not familiar with you abbreviation... but are you talking about a Chameleon?

    I realize some kits come with things you don't need and may even be wrong, but looking at a few different starter kits you should be able to narrow down some stuff that will work. For example: Ultimate Chameleon Setup That said, I bet subrosa or others should be able to give some good info here =)

    Little help can be offered until we know what species you've decided on.

    I am unfamiliar with LED' s and have no clue whether the UVA/UVB output on these will be sufficient for the needs of chameleons.

    I can't imagine that any CP's would be suitable for a chameleon tank, as the lizards can get heavy enough to trample over almost anything. Some species of bromeliad are very sturdy though, and commonly used in vivariums that see a lot of foot-traffic from the animals.

    I want to purchase Jackson chameleon. They are mainly recommended as pet chameleons. Frankly speaking reptiles are very hard to keep, but they are so beautiful!

    As for the light I decided to install the cheapest florescent lamps https://www.mrosupply.com/search/?q=Florescent

    Plants… maybe some special decorative tree?
