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.

Helps create safe, natural hiding spots
Can be used in combination with live plants
Easier to keep clean and maintain than live plants but gives you the same advantages as live 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

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.
Muffin loves it!

I have a year old leopard gecko and we keep in a bioactive enclosure, but while I'm waiting for my live plants to grow, I got this silk abutilon thing to give him some privacy in his little humid hide. It is very pretty and doesn't take away from my live plants. I think I'll leave it in there forever!

I got it today and I love how it sticks to glass the turtles moves it and it doesn’t fall and it makes the tank feel like nature
Very soft to the touch

This is pretty soft to the touch and is more for hiding in then climbing on. Either way my Crested Gecko loves it.
