Default Live Plants for Waterdragons and Chameleons?

Hi all.

I have got brand new vivs coming for all my animals this week.

I am planning on covering the inside of my 6 foot arboreal viv with planting background (cocs panels wqith built in 'baskets').

I also want to do the same in 2 chameleon vivarums and my dartfrog terrarium.

Now, I would love to know any suggestions for plants to have in a waterdragon vivarium. There are 2 that are almost fully grown. I will need fast climbers to cover the panels as well as some nice strong foliage plants that wont get destroyed quickly!!

I also need advice on plants for the chameleons. Obviously these dont need to be quite so strong.

I look forward to your suggestion and would LOVE to see any photos of live plants in use with these reptiles!

Many Thanks

Gary

Devils Ivy aka Pothos! Wicked stuff and its what i use in my chams viv too.... Other very available plants are Ficus & Hibicus both very good plants but I think that devils ivy is the best. You can direct it where you want over bendable vines, thick leaves give good cover and I think the leaves keep the humidity up better than the other plants.....
