    I think you did a good job utilizing the vine... But I would put more foliage in at the bottom.

    What do you mean 'any suggestions'? Buy foliage, put it in Cover the area better so your gecko has places to hide. Do some Searches (look up above for the Search button) on enclosures, habitats, cages etc. or look through the Caging & Terrariums section for ideas.

    Pothos, umbrella plants, etc etc.

    For fake plants, you can use croton, ficus, and others.

    Not a difficult concept to follow. Just fill in the tank with more plants, and maybe some more climbing branches.

    Fake plants from Wal-Mart will do. If you want live plants you can look at the Plants Master List for plants that are safe for Cresties

    Also a tall piece of driftwood that branches out would look nice.

    As far as the vines, I like twisting them, like so. I just think it looks much better.

    Also, check out Hobby Lobby and Michaels. They have TONS of artifical plants/flowers. Personally I like plastic ones over silk, since they hold droplets of water that the cresties lick up. Silk just soaks the water right up.
