The Exo Terra Mandarin Plastic Plant is an artificial replica of mandarin 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.

My gecko love this item!! Defiantly would recommend!!!! When I got the package it was fully wrapped and prepared for usage!! If you order the small it's actually pretty large and a decent size for a crested gecko or around that size!!
Cute For Tank

None of my geckos have taken to actually climbing this even though they're all climbers, but I really like what it adds to the tank aesthetically. And who knows! Maybe one day they'll climb it.

I recently purchased the large size for my eastern painted turtle, and once she was used to it (20 minutes) she started hiding in it resting in it and sleeping in it.
I highly recommend the large. Hang them from the top corner, they'll hang into the water they don't settle to the bottom they float a bit off of it which is fine with me. Most importantly my turtle definitely feels more security.
I purchased two :)
Love this Plastic Plant

We ordered this plant and the ivy plant. I have to say by far the Exo Terra Mandarin Plastic Plant is our Bearded Dragons favorite. We ordered the sixe medium and will be ordering the size small and large to add a little extra foliage to our bearded dragons desert enclosure. Our bearded dragon is still a baby and he climbs up the plant and just hangs around. It is super cute.

These are perfect for my viv windows. The suction cups work well to hang on plexiglass or glass without falling off.
Large Mandarin Plastic Plant

I don't... love it but it works well when modified. It really needs one or even two more suction cups in my opinion. If your tank isn't vertical, most of this plant is on the floor of the tank. I wanted it on the sides of the tank, not for ground cover. Unless you modify it yourself, you're better off buying multiple small sized mandarin plants.

I bought three for a 20 gallon long tank for 2 adult cresties, and they were amazing! The ones for large were very long and nice quality, so I had an extra for another tank for juvenile cresties! Awesome plants, I hightly recommend them!

I bought the small size from my local petco, and it was very small. When I ordered this product I chose the large size, and holy cow did it fill up my tank! This thing is huge, a lot bigger than I thought it would be. My crested gecko really likes it and I'd buy it again
Love these for my tanks

I use these for my turtles, axolotls, aquatic frogs, and fish. I like how durable they are. For the reptiles and amphibians it’s nice that they suction cup to the walls so they animals can’t move them around and they’re stable enough for them to perch on!
Love the splash of color

I love what this adds to my Leo's tank. Can't do live plants since they require light that could blind my Leo, so this are a great compromise and I love them!! Ordered more!!
