Trailing Plants

Trailing plants are a great way to cover the back walls and sides of your enclosure. They can also be used to disguise leads running throughout your enclosure. Trailing plants are especially good in chameleon and crested gecko enclosures as they will catch a lot of the water from the morning spray allowing your pet to drink from them. With a variety of leaf patterns and plant lengths there is a trailing plant to suit every enclosure. Also as these plants are artificial you do not need to worry about their upkeep or effect on the enclosure.
