I want a chameleon. I've made a lot of research on Internet and was wondering about that : veiled cham. need a water drip system. But if water drops fall in the cage all day long, it must create a mess no ? do you put a small bowl under the drip system so that the water falls in the bowl and each evening you empty the bowl ? and yes i know it's a dumb question but I wanna be sure of what to do before i buy my chameleon.

Not sure about about your water drip question.
I'd suggest giving Magazoo a call, they're a pet shop (in Montreal) specialized in reptiles, www.magazoo.com
or call them at 514-593-5538.

Lol yeah i know but now it's clear in my mind : chameleon. They are harder to keep than geckos but my basement would be perfect for a cham since it's very humid during summer. I'm doing research on chameleons know what i'm doing

you place the drip system over the plants, that way it doesnt flood your tank, you can also put a little cup underneth it. I heard that ice cubes work to, just set it on a screen top

The problem with the ice cube method is that the water is still ice-cold, ingesting something that cold is A Bad Thing for almost any reptile, let alone one as sensitive as a chameleon.

Yes, you place a cup or basin under the drip to prevent flooding.

Get a chemical sprayer at the plant section of a home depot or lowes, spray the tree 2-3 times a day. Or build a funnel and have it catch the drips and funnel it into the trees soil. Also due to their difficulity of careing I woud not rocommend a chameloen unless you have a lot of experienced in keeping lizards or other reptiles. Their environment needs to be perfect.

It is a good idea to have a drip system as mine will not drink still water.

Wot i have done to stop the floor of the cage getting flooded is bought a small water fall from my local reptile shop and just attached the dripping tube to it.

He doesn't drink from it often so i have to take the tube out and let it drip in front of his face for afew mins then he normally drinks from it. I also spray his leaves afew times a day and he sometimes drinks the drips falling from them.

Took me a while to get him to drink.
