Default Fake Stump Use

I'm working on two 10 gallon conversions. While getting dog food at Petsmart, I found some fake stumps that look awesome that I would love to use in a viv, but want to know if they are safe. They are resin models made for aquariums. Here is a link to something similar, any advice would appreciated. Thanks

perfectly safe. Most of us just prefer the challenge of using natural materials or making our own

Never tried making a tree stump before.. usually let nature take care of it because I hear it takes years of patience and millions of decades to perfect.. I personally don't have that much time

Good to know they are safe, I would love to find natural woods like this but currently am short on funds. For less than 10 each I can get one at petsmart and make a nice looking home for some happy frogs. Will plants grow on this successfully, I mean like creepers? Can you attach broms successfully?

I love those too! They look very real in the viv. In the right spot a brom would grow on them, but the roots will not penetrate it and hold on.
