Any type of silk or plastic plants are ok. Just make sure there are no loops for it to get stuck in if you buy from a craft store, a post on the bp forum had a bp that got stuck in one of those loops. Cork bark makes good hides, itís light so if it falls if wont hurt your snake. Free space, well a baby rtb will probably want to hide most of the time, but open space is good so at night he can come out and explore. Make sure to have a few hides, water bowl dig enough for him to get into.
