The Exo Terra Star Cactus helps to create natural hiding spots for reptiles and amphibians. An extremely realistic replica of real plants, the Star Cactus is easy to clean and maintain and can be used in conjunction with real plants. A combination of live plants and the Exo Terra's artificial plants allows you to fully plant a terrarium, even in the hottest or driest parts. Ideal for use in more 'sterile' set-ups (e.g. quarantine terrariums) or used in those spots of the terrarium where real plants cannot thrive or survive.
