 Drip vines?

I will be building a large terrarium for my iguana soon and i was wanting to put a drip vine in there. I had the idea myself and i figured it would be something pretty common but I havent been able to find anyone who has one or any tutorials.

Basically I want a hose disguised as a vine with tiny holes cut into it that drip water continuosly. Im sure it would be easy to make. I was just wondering why i havent seen them?

Im also going to build a water fall so links to stuff like that is good too ;)

Haven’t seen them before but they sound like a good idea would love to see photos of them once you have got them working and set up in the tank

I’m building it myself along with an entire terrarium for my iguana. It is all in the planning stages but I will share every detail with everyone on reptic zone :)

Many garden supply shops carry something called a soaker hose, wich is a length of normal garden hose made of a permiable substance that oozes water continuously. you can usually find black or grea hose for about $10-15 for 20-25’. it looks surprisingly similar to vines and if you have hollow climbing logs, you could conseal it in the log. i hope i was of help to you.
