take a look at your local pet store, look around the fish tanks etc at all the plastic plants they use, most are ideal for jungle scenery add to them your usual mix of herbs and spices and you will have something close to jungle

Hi,
I use dried plants alot. Springerii looks just like elephant grass in scale. Dark green shades of Eucalyptus look good to. The coolest thing about them is they're real! They break and burn just like the real thing and you don't have to paint them if you don't want to. Preiser makes decent palm trees(alot cheaper than the resin stuff).
BTW A lesson I've learned when making jungle foliage. Start with the low stuff and work higher,ie Grass,bushes, trees. Sphagnum moss,airbrushed green, is a good first layer for jungle terrain.
