Are there any aquarium that resemble palm trees?

Plants that is, aquarium plants. Boy I am horrible about skipping words. Anyway... Creative ideas invited.

If you get a driftwood stick, like a short one, tie a small variation of Java Fern to the top, viola! Palm Tree! Or a few java ferns that point in different directions, you can make notches in the wood so that you can tie them on there better

Christmas moss and java moss are commonly used to create those looks.

For regular tree's yes, but that's going to be difficult to make a Palm tree out of those hence I didn't suggest it :/ But I'm sure if you finagled it, it might work out!

OH I'm all the way up in the northeast corner of North America. I had to re-read the plant look you want. Haha palm trees!! lol Java fern would be best. Don't mind me sure I've never been to a tropical place.

I will give the java plant a try. So what is a good place to buy driftwood? I am going to need some for my "palms" and in general.

I got my "tree" from bobstropicalplants.com he's got a bunch of "stick" like driftwood so that might be a good place to start, otherwise just search around on ebay/amazon maybe, AB and at your LFS's if they carry any driftwood. You might even be able to get a chunk and cut it yourself into like more of a palm tree shape
