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.

It's not that bad. It's perfect size for our Larry's (curly hair) 5gal tank. We also bought the terra ficus plant and that one just looks much prettier and is softer. This one has a bit of a rugged look, like our Larry so that's why it's not so bad. Goes with him lol. We bought both plants in small.
I love this

I love this plant especially because of what the leaves look like, if you know you know. Lol. But other than that it’s just a fake plant, not really much to it other than that.

My leopard gecko loves the fake leaves. We hang it on the back wall of his terrarium where he occasionally will climb on it. He occasionally will also just vibe underneath it.
for my hognose!

bought for my hognose enclosure to add a plant. I stuck it on securely by breathing moist air on it first!! They stick better with moisture. She was climbing in it as soon as she noticed it!
Great for Tarantulas

Bought this for more coverage to allow my Juvie Tarantula to hide! He loved it! Great length and coverage!
trying to eat plants

For anyone who reptiles try to eat it . Mines did the same thing but now he doesn’t anymore !! He did for a few minutes but then he realized it isn’t food . Also try to take it out the tank every time they try to bite it then put it back and repeat . So they learn they aren’t supposed to do that ((: good luck

Recommended only for dry enclosures

The fabric or plastic of this fake plant is very flimsy and really doesn’t feel great, so I’m guessing it would probably mold easy. I have to clean my humid snake tank much more than my dry tank, and I doubt this plant would stand up to continual cleaning.
It does offer good cover and has been hanging up alright on the glass, even before cleaning the sucker with alcohol. My Hognose enjoys hiding on and around it, and isn’t heavy enough to damage the plant or pull the sucker off, so it’s working well as a decoration for her.

My bearded dragon kept trying to eat this false plant so I had to remove it from his enclosure it's not entirely the company's fault my dragon is pretty stupid
