'Barbarism is the natural state of mankind,' the borderer said, still staring somberly at the Cimmerian. 'Civilization is unnatural. It is a whim of circumstance. And barbarism must always ultimately triumph.'

Aquarium Bushes

This is a pretty basic piece of terrain, simple scatter terrain to give the feeling of underbrush/jungle for 28mm or perhaps towering jungle vegetation in 15mm.

Start with a washer about the size you want to make your plant base, mine were probably 1 1/2" - 2"

Cut a piece of card to fir over the washer and cover the hole.
  
I used hot glue to glue the card to the base of the washer.

Poke three or so holes in the card to accept the aquarium plant stems.  You may wish to texture and paint your base at this time.  I was in a hurry and experimenting so I didn't both at this point.
 
Insert plants into the holes.

Wire the plants into a standing position.

Fill the bottom hole where the stems are with hot glue.  Be careful to make sure your plants don't pop out of the glue as you let it set.

Sample bushes/vegetation around a bridge I am working on.
