Miniature Reptile Micro Gardens – Coming Soon

Miniature Reptile Micro Gardens

If it weren’t for all the great reviews and continued support of so many pet keepers from all over the world, I would not have had the pleasure of these past fifteen years. I am fortunate to have been able to continue creating and designing artificial plants for freshwater aquariums and reptile terrarium habitats.

I am truly grateful to have those patrons, many of which are repeat customers!

In keeping with the Reptile theme, I am happy to announce a new design line of Miniature Reptile Micro Gardens. The new artificial gardens will feature miniature Reptiles (Gecko’s, Komodo Dragons and Chameleons) and Snakes, nestled in a natural looking scene of greenery, sand and lava rocks. The Micro gardens will fit nicely on a tabletop or desktop along with adding a little green to your space!

The base of the Miniature Reptile Micro Gardens will either be a miniature wood pallet or a low profile round dish. I’ll also be using pieces of slate, both as a base and or as part of the Micro Garden itself.

And for the fish keepers, there will also be Miniature Aquatic Micro Gardens which will feature a variety of fish and marine life with greenery or coral. There will also be one original design that features a unique water element with miniature Koi fish!

The Micro Garden designs should be available by summer’s end 2021.

Handcrafted Artificial Plants – Hand Designed


What does he mean by saying "handcrafted artificial plants"?

One questions that pops up often is “what do you mean, you make them? Don’t you just cut the stems and glue them into a base?”

Yes, many of the plant designs I create are not “made” by me. After cutting all the leaves and stems from their core stem, I then begin the design process. Sometimes its just a matter of bending the stems in a realistic looking pattern, turning the leaves and then securing them all into a base.

I also “create” the base for the aquarium and reptile habitat plants. It is made up of a small plastic (food safe) container which is filled with river rock and then, secured within using nontoxic adhesive.

The art of it is often, it’s construction and creation.

And then there are the plants that I “make”. I do actually construct & design the entire plant along with its base. As you can see in the images below, the construction part begins by first cutting and choosing the leaves or stems.

After I’ve decided on the materials, I then begin to construct a base for the design. There is a center point spindle from which I plan the design.

From there I start placing / positioning the stems in a “realistic looking” design pattern. A great deal of thought go’s into the placement each and every stems or leaf.

The base will be then weighted (secured) with river rock. Each stone is hand chosen and placed around the inner base (trunk / stem) of the design. The river rock also adds stability to the design structure.

And here is the completed design!

Happy Holidays 2020 from Ron Beck Designs

Happy Holidays, 2020, from Ron Beck Designs

Tis that time of year, the Christmas Holidays.

This year certainly doesn’t feel like holidays past as our world has drastically changed for the worst. We have been pledged by the Corona Virus. The suffering we have experienced is unprecedented. It’s hard to fathom that one virus, from a far away land, was able to change our entire way of life in a matter of days.

Many have lost loved ones during this pandemic. It will make this holiday, even harder to bare. It’s so important that we look deep within our selves for the strength & support people will need. Stop and listen for their call for help. Do some thing for some one. Love, care and compassion for others are the most valuable gifts one can give any time of the year.

I want to wish you all a safe holiday season and cherish the gift of time you are given.

Take care – Ron
