Just very cheap good quality fake plants. All of the plant decor in there cosy me about £40. Would have been over £200 at a guess with reptile branded stuff. For example the thickish bunches of grasses are 59p per stem

Think its coz i use cat litter trays (hard to tip with the shape of them) but i did freak out 2 weeks ago when i couldnt find one of my younger boas, couldnt find him anywhere in the viv at all.....after ages of wondering where in hell he could be......found he had burrowed under the litter tray and was curled up underneath in a little worm tunnel he had created...bless

As they get bigger I can move stuff around to allow obvious routes. Not sure it will work but that's the plan, and it's given me a lot of satisfaction doing it
I LOVE decorating new vivs very enjoyable and theraputic

I looked everywhere for large branches online & in shops but always seriously expensive so ended up looking for hardwood fallen branches while out walking, take home remove any decay or loose bark , sterilise and disinfect prior to use. Artificial plants are so expensive specific from reptile suppliers so good to find a cheaper source

It was the decor department and yes you can but I think cheaper in person.

Quite easy actually.

Ivy was drawing pins on the back wall.
Grass is into holes drilled into the shelving and other leafy plants into holes drilled into the decorative wood. Whole lot could be stripped out in 5 minutes

Still all in 1 piece and replaced the cooking bowl with a nice big litter tray in the shade under the hot shelf.
