Do you have a picture of the tank? Also what type of day gecko do you have because some like it more humid than others. I have a snake plant in my tank that they love and seems to be doing well. I also have a dracaena that's a bit closer to the ground. If you have problems putting the plants directly in the soil, just pot them in a terra cotta pot and put some moss on top.

: Hi there....

: What I have right now is a 20 gallon extra high aquarium ( 20W X 10D X 24H ) with 10 lbs of river rock on the bottom, a plastic grid to seperate it from the soil, and a slope of sphagnum moss in the top layer, anywhere from 3-7 inches deep. It also has a piece of wood placed horizontally and one piece of Snake Plant that reaches all the way to the top. Full spectrum lighting, blue bulb heating.

: First off, I was told this plant was good....but now I've also been told it will not like the humidity, and my soil is too loose for it. So what do you think?

: Also, I'd like to know what other plants to get. I'm thinking african violets or maybe an orchid, though I may have troubles keeping the latter. What I'd really like would be another taller plan that has some less-vertically oriented leaves, allowing my day geck to bask a little closer if it wishes to. Then I'm also interested in some close to the ground type plants....

: And the last question: Is it bad to be misting the cage? ( for plants ) I don't mist so much that water condenses on the glass, but it's probably 70-80%. One thing I could do is install a dripper for the gecko's water source, and let that fall into a pool which I can change daily.

: let me know what your opinions are..
: Thanks,
: Zeb
