About This Product

Beautiful and unique plant mounts from Josh’s Frogs are one-of-a-kind pieces of art and will enhance the look of any vivarium and provide natural cover for animals. Depending on the type of plant, some mounts can be displayed on a wall or table as living art and will thrive in normal household environments.

Mounting plants can be tricky and time-consuming, taking weeks or even months for the roots to grab on securely. Here at Josh’s Frogs, we grow the mounts out at our greenhouse until the roots are firmly attached to the background and the fishing line can be removed. This allows them to be placed directly in the vivarium without fear of animals getting caught up in the fishing line. Some of our mounts also come with hooks on the back that can be easily removed if you don’t need them. Mounts may be shipped with fishing line, rubber bands, or other materials to secure the plants during shipping and prevent breakage.

This is a ‘Grower’s Choice’ plant. Each order will include one of any currently stocked Tree Fern Mounted Fluffy Ruffles Ferns.

Fern size, shape, and appearance may differ from the product photo.
