ok for the branches go to the mountains, park or back yard(dont get caught) if you are anywere near them (I drove 3.5 hours) look for clean fallen branches or even cut them I like to find curved and twisted ones they have more uses if you have access to a screw gun screw them together anyway you like soak or scrub with bleach and bake ( I think around 250 degrees for at least 1 hour to kill any bugs that might be in it, for the size they should be at least slightly bigger than there body, for the cage I personally like to use hardware cloth (takes care of vent issue) and if you use it on top you can set your bulbs right on it it also lets them climb up the sides, for the misting system they are great but you also have to put even more thought into a drainage system (just in case)and the bottom needs to be water proof, I just bought a garden pump sprayer for $10 plexi glass is cool stuff but it scratches too easily and will look ugly in a fairly short time and the best part about all of this is you can get it all at your local hardware store Home Depot or Lowes if you want to post your address Ill e-mail you some pictures sorry so long
