Aquarium Decoration Plants for Jungle Terrain

Aquarium decoration is a great source for all sorts of wargaming jungle terrain. I recently showed off some very nice ruins, today I want to share some useful plastic plants.

Plants form the core of any jungle-themed gaming board. The occasional palm tree is nice but what you really want is dense vegetation made up of many many plants. The best source of affordable and nicely sized plants is aquarium decoration supplies. I used a few aquarium plants for the jungle terrain sections that I finished recently. Now I found some very nice products on Amazon: Plant Mats from the "Hobby" range by Dohse Aquaristik. They come in four different versions:

Hobby Plant Mat 1

Hobby Plant Mat 2

Hobby Plant Mat 3

Hobby Plant Mat 4

Mats 1, 2 and 3 are basically grass blades in different sizes, mat 4 is an entirely different type of plant. Below are two photos for size comparison of the four plant types with 28mm pirates from Crusader and Wargames Foundry.

You get nice results when you combine and stack the plants. I already look forward to creating a couple of simple but effective terrain sections with these plants.
