The Exo Terra Abutilon Silk Plant is an artificial silk replica of abutilon leaves that can provide decoration in your terrarium and a safe hiding spot for your reptile. Live plants have various light and maintenance requirements and risk being eaten by the terrarium inhabitants. Exo Terra’s realistic replicas give you the same advantages of live plants, but they’re easier to clean and maintain. You can use them in combination with real plants by placing the artificial plants in areas that are too hot or dry to allow live plants to thrive.

I ordered the Medium and it works great! It's a bit shorter than I would've liked (the Ficus Medium is longer), but it looks great! I hung it on the door of my 18x18x24 terrarium, so it fits better and looks better there than it looks on one of the walls. It arrived a little crumpled in the packaging, but it has smoothed itself out a bit. It also doesn't look too realistic, but overall it is very pretty!
Great deal & "look" lol

Love em! The leaves appear 100X more realistic than many bc they are not all the exact same hue of green. The leaves also look suspiiiiciously like another plant I'm familiar with, so is an extra laugh/convo piece ;)
Def worth the few bucks!
This product is great

I bought this for my juvenile Crested Gecko and he loves it. Out of all the vines and plants I've put in his enclosure he's almost always in the abutilon plants!
My turtle loves it

The large is my favorite size as it is very big and bushy and gives the perfect jungle vibe to any enclosure.

The plant is nice. My RES likes to hide under it and it gives him shelter. Works great underwater too. It's kinda funny that it looks like weed too, my brother likes it haha

I have 2- 10 gallon terrariums each have a leapord gecko. I was going to order the medium but I'm glad I ordered the small. As the small is a good size but almost to big depending on what all you have in their habitat/how you place it. They are pretty flexible making them be able to be spread out or be more bunched up which is awesome. They look nice and are much softer than the plastic plants. Our geckos seem to enjoy them when they are out and about from their hot spot which I believe means basking. Still learning the lingo as I am new to this lol but my kids LOVE that they got the geckos/accessories for Christmas.

I bought this for my 9-year-old crested gecko and he adores it. I always find him hiding among the leaves, and since it's plastic I don't have to worry about trimming it or watering it. It was the perfect Christmas present to him and he'll enjoy it for the rest of his life.

Once she thoroughly checked it out my cornsnake loves hiding in it and climbing in it. The suction cups are extremely convenient and can hold her up when she's in them. Im not sure much she weighs but she's 3 feet so... Kinda heavy I guess.
