Default Where can I find vines or driftwood like this?

I have looked everywhere on the internet for real jungle vines and driftwood and cannot find anything like this. Specialy with all the small roots hanging. Any help?

To me it looks like they took small manzanita and spider wood branches and attached them to the larger piece

If you are feeling crafty, there is a tutorial on Youtube about making your own vines from Burlap. You cut long strips of burlap and cover them with Aquarium safe silicone and then coat them with Cocoa Fiber and start twisting(and twisting and coating and twisting some more). This method is a LOT of work, but I was so impressed at how they look. Don't forget to wear gloves if you decide to try this as it's messy. Feel free to hit me up if you have any questions.

I have some live rooted vines and lianas if you might want to go with vine features.

Exactly my thought - just grow them. In a humid viv many plants throw "small, hanging" aerial roots.

Good luck!
