Question Jungle Vines | How to?

Good evening to all,

I'm getting ready to set up my new aquascape. The original idea was to go for something minimal like Bonsai Themed. After much thought, I finally came up with something completely different from the original plan.

So I'm making an Indonesian Style aquascape!!!

As you can see from the video below, a very important part of the jungle are the jungle vines, which will be like roots hugging the rocks.



My question is what wood do you propose to use for making Vines?

Last week, I went for a walk in a nearby mountain (Athens, Greece) and saw that it was full of ivy plants so it seemed like a good solution to get dried sprigs and use them as roots.

Has anyone had any experience with ivy? Are there any other ideas for making the vines?

Something similar is 'red moor wood' also called 'spider wood'. It's readily available at any good aquarium store; I would assume you can find it there.
