I would use a selection of amllish bromolids and tillansdia (air plants) as they are hardy and very easy to keep.

have a look here, www.justairplant.co.uk i juse these all the time now as the plant quality is excelent.

Also yopu can get a range of climbers and folage plants from garden centres if you have a good rummage, if not you can also get some from dartfrog.co.uk.

justairplant are getting some foliage plants too soon so it should be a one stop viv plat shop! Oh and Gill on here is a awesome person to talk to just PM with size and budget and he will reply with a selection of plants for you!

Also look at Ficus Benjamina (about £20 for a 4 foot 3-4 "trunk" one @ homebase)

And Scheffelera arbicola (sp) - Dwarf Umbrella Plant about £10 for a 2foot one - Note there is another in this Genus S. Arti..... this one can be a slight irritant so not the best for Yemens that do eat their plants. THe S. Arbicola is fine.

and Pothos (Devil's Ivy) are also good

Have a look on www.chameleonforums.com for some good info and plant lists

Ive never kept a yemen but arent they omnivorous? SO they eat the plants sometimes!? If thats right then ficus sap is an irritant so might be worth checking out if the ficus genus is same for yemens?

I got my plants from Reptile Supplies, Reptiles, Amphibians, Invertebrates, Cages, Feeders, and More here is a picture of what I got. I split it up into a couple of enclosures. I put most of the plants in my planted viv the others in my chameleon setup. As stated I would check and make sure your cham will be safe and not eating or being irritated by your plants!



PLANTS
Ficus tree X 3
Tillandsias x6
Bromeliads x3
The Earth's Star Plant - Cryptanthus bivittatus x 3





I use the rest in my custom cham setup
