Chameleons

I'm new to this forum and so i'm not sure were to post what. Anyway i'm getting a panther chameleon and it needs a water sprinkiling system. I saw one that you seal the part were the water comes out on to the glass. My question is where would i attach the part that attaches to glass if my chameleon cage isn't made of glass but the sides are screens?

You could attach it to the screen frame perhaps? Or get a clip for it, and do the same.

Yeah that is what i was thinking, my only concern is how stable will it be. I don't need the water to splash in all directions just on the main plant of the enclosure.

I've never kept a cham, but don't you need a glass enclosure so that you can maintain the proper humidity?

I heard that Chams need a lot of air as they are arboreal and so glass cages tend to choke them. I think you need at least two of the sides to be screens or open so the cham can get enough air. I believe that the sprinkler will help maintain some humidity in the cage.

Because the lighting will be at the top of the cage, i want to put the spriklers near the top but on the side of the cage and pointe at the plant so i can water the plant and still have all the lighting.
