I have tried several "natural" enclosures for my horned frogs over the years but I think the success I've had with this particular cornuta has something to do with how sanitary I can keep his enclosure. A very basic coconut fiber/ water dish/ fake plants-setup has worked very well for me.
Natural setups look better at first but a big horned frog will uproot your plants and totally destroy the setup trying to find a place to hide. The other concern with a totally natural setup is how can you clean it so the frog isn't sitting in its own filth? For those reasons I prefer a basic setup that is easy to maintain. If you have an idea that you think might work out by all means try it. This is just my opinion on the matter.
