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.

Overall I’m pleased with this product, it looks good. The suction cup could be better but it’s not horrible by any means. I ordered one large for my 35 gallon tank and it takes up half of a side wall, two would completely fill it. If you wanted to place the vines in specific places you could easily get some more suction cups to do so, they aren’t so stuff they have to lay straight down. My gecko loves it!

Great decor for an enclosure

My fire skink loves to burrow under these plants! Great addition to any reptile enclosure and a great way to provide shade for a gecko, skink or snake. The suction cups work fine as long as they are wetted before sticking.

I ordered 2 medium sized Mandarin leaves for my corn snake tanks and when I got them, they were not 20 inches as indicated by Chewy. I'm kinda upset that they are shorter than expected. I wanted to drape it down along the 2 cages so they had more places to hide.
HIGH QUALITY AND GREAT SIZE -- EXCELLENT VALUE

My Aquatic Turt loves this plant. It is great quality and a very nice size for her 75 gal tank. Looks like it belongs there and not in a fish bowl. Thanks for the high quality plant at a very reasonable price.

The only thing i dislike about this item is the suction cup that holds the plant to the glass. Its too small and the plant is kind of heavy but it is holding it up. My dragon loves his decorated cage!
Not as expected

I got the small with it being described as 12 inches in length. It was much shorter than that but that might have been due to half of the leaves falling off
awesome fake plant

I have actually purchased these multiple times for my frog and my fish. I purchased them again for my Madagascar hissing cockroaches. They are a big hit! Not only do my cockroaches like to climb on them occasionally, they add great ambience to the terrarium… Which is dinosaur themed. I also used it for my breeding platy fish. It was an excellent place for the fry to hide.

It's huge! It barely fits in my gecko's cage and that's a 20 gallon cage. I wouldn't buy it for a 10 gallon since that would be too small. It's actually a great accessory and looks very pretty next to my gecko's hidey hole. Paired it with the cork log that I bought from Chewy also. Makes the cage look very pretty.

I purchased 2 exoterra mandarin large plants and as soon as I took the out of the bag leaves started to fall off. Very dissatisfied because I was going to use then for my Ball Python and can not cause he is a big snake and will most likely pull off more.
