I guess rocks and stones do seem a more natural option, but I think, as Scotty suggested, that one or two small plants in the corners would maybe break up the monotony a bit -- the desert isn't completely devoid of plant life, after all.

Also, picked up some tupperwear for a moist box today; it's not the kind with an air-tight seal, and it's frosted clear plastic. Will this have any real effect on the purpose it serves, or is it pretty much good to go?

I hope to pick up some sphagnum moss, and one or two other little but important things tomorrow, like a lock and that second thermometer, and maybe a dish for calcium powder. Is there anything else I absolutely need to put in there before my geckos come home, or is it okay to leave off on most of the decor until Saturday when we pick them up?
