    Default Updated Gold Dust Day Gecko Terrarium!


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello everyone,
    After nearly 2 months of growing cuttings, I was finally able to plant some pothos into my Gold Dust Day Gecko's enclosure. I planted them directly into the eco earth, even though it has low nutrients because I heard pothos doesn't need much. I think it looks pretty decent for my first time. My gecko is doing great, he even eats in front of me now, but I still can't even open the cage without him freaking out.

    Thanks,
    Josh

    Looks great. I took a Pothos plant from my mother's house when she passed away 15 years ago and its cuttings now fill nearly all my planted tanks.

    Thanks for sharing, Josh, and letting me know.

    I hope your pothos continues to thrive.

    Your tank looks great! Is there a hide on the bottom?

    I love the name "15" too - that sounds like the type of name I would choose.

    Thanks! I don't have a hide at the bottom, but my gecko never seems to be on the floor unless I scare him there and I thought I didn't need one for a day gecko. Should I have one? Sorry, I'm new to having geckos.

    Thanks! I have small cuttings right now, but I hope they grow to cover the floor of the cage. If they grow too large, how should I trim them?

    I don't have a day gecko, so not sure about the hide either...hopefully someone with experience can clarify whether one is needed.

    I've had lined-day geckos for a while now. A terrestrial hide is not necessary. My geckos, and yours, are arboreal primarily. In their native habitat they are found in a range of habitat, from banana plantations to thorny forests. They have a definite preference for bamboo, ghost wood, cork, bromeliads, and any large leafed plant.

    My guys have established their own hiding places and territories in my enclosures, usually in the strangest places. The original female lives behind the fan housing, her mate likes the back side of an orchid plaque (the orchid died long ago). The point is, Do provide it with hides and foliage. I find that the more secure these arboreal day geckos feel...the more likely you will see them basking. Mine have become relatively comfortable with my gawking at them, this years batch of youngsters actually come to see me....especially when food is involved.

    Pothos: If it gets too extensive, just cut it off right below where it's developing new roots and you can either toss the piece or plant it somewhere else.
