    Fake Plants, Give Them To Me!

    So my fake plants have been through some hard time and I'm looking for a comparable replacement but haven't found any and not excited to make my own.

    Ideally, I'm looking for an 18-inch plant with a heavy base that have plastic/metal wiring inside (so they can be bent back into shape). I used to buy mine locally, but the guy who made them completely disappeared...

    Any suggestions would be highly appreciated!

    Here's what I have now:

    Stick with the leaves. Snakes hate fern based fake plants! I have nothing for you. Just make sure you wash them upon receiving them. I know you arenít using ferns. Just warning

    If you have a Good Will or like place near you take a look. $5 worth would last a few years.

    Good luck!

    I get mine from Michael's. They have a big selection, but they're really expensive.

    Re: Fake Plants, Give Them To Me!

    Yea, I've been looking around and it seems all the "silk plants" can get pretty pricey.

    I did find this website today that make exactly what I'm looking for but can't find anyone that sells them except for Ebay.

    Re: Fake Plants, Give Them To Me!

    I just bought several from Michael's (they usually have a sale and if you download the AP, there is a 50% off coupon). To make them more stable, I found some bricks and cut them down in sections (one hole per section) and stuck the plants in the hole to secure them in the enclosure.
