Cork Flats
Hand-selected, high quality cork bark flats
Cork Flats Assorted Detailed Cork Flat
Cork flats are commonly used for custom backgrounds, decor pieces, plant mounts, and look great in live vivariums. Cork does not break down in even the most humid/wet conditions. Not usually for use under water, as it's extremely buoyant. Probably the most commonly used wood in vivariums today, due to it's high resistance to breaking down. An environmentally friendly, renewable resource!
