I think it looks awesome. The only thing I would suggest is getting some more levels in there and climbing stuffs, but yoy mentioned its a WIP. :)

(A slate tile cut to size could balance on the ruler lip (fab idea btw) and could offer a nice level for them to hang out on.

If youre going to grow plants or if you get real vines I suggest getting new zealand tree fern tiles! otherwise for the bare sides of the glass where you won't be viewing grab some cork bark tile to put in there they love climbing it!
