Plants?

Post by Oliviet#1 » Thu Apr 04, 2019 9:25 pm

Does anyone use fake or real plants in their crabitat? I want to use some to let them have more privacy and so they can climb up or to a pit. Please let me know. If you know a link or a store please share also. Thank you!

Many people use fake plants. The silk or fabric type don't last long, the crabs pretty much shred them up. Plastic aquarium plants are better. If you look at the photos section, some people have some pretty impressive fake plants!

Me?

Currently have:
- broms
- prayer plants
- peperomia prostrata
- bella palm
- synogonium sp.
- christmas cactus
- ficus pumila var. variegated
- dead java moss
- hoya sp.
- rabbit foot fern
- pothos


Thats about it.

Most people I've heard who have tried live plants, broms, pothos and palms are commonly used. In the past, also had great success with prayer plants...

Thats about it.
Is there any particular reason why "dead" Java moss? Was it just left on land for extended period of time?
