 Crestie Plants/Vivarium Books

I am making a 18"x36"x18" cage for a crested gecko, and iím wondering what kind of plants I could use. Itíd have to be tropical, since they need high humidity. Iíve been thinking Pothos or Pink Polca-Dot Plants, but iím not sure.

Do any of you have any experience with this sort of terrarium? Also, are there any books you could direct me towards?

Thanks a ton.

 Crestie Plants/Vivarium Books

Hey, Iím looking to do the same thing. You should get a copy of the book Rhacodactylus: The Complete Guide to there Selection and Care by Phillipe De Vosjoli. He recommends some live plants for a crested. According to the book there favorite is Weeping figs or Ficus Benjamina. Others he recommends are dracaenas, dwarf umbrella plants, spineless bromelaids, birdsnest ferns, and hoyas.

I hope that helps.
