Do you want to set up a desert terrarium with resistant and versatile natural woods? Driftwood is definitely for you by expanding the movement space of your animals.
Also perfect to add in planted terrariums, in aquaterrariums with frogs or lungfish, they will offer you an anchoring point for epiphytic and non-epiphytic plants.
They are also excellent for arboreal reptiles, for snakes such as Morelia or Ahetulla to allow them to curl up and rest and for arboreal geckos such as Lepidodactylus, Correlophus and Phelsuma to move freely as they would in nature.

Driftwoods of natural origin are the optimal choice for furnishing freshwater aquariums. They will allow you to indulge in the art of aquascaping.
They can be used with bare or vegetative mangrove-like layouts, they are in fact ideal for aquaterrariums or aquariums that reproduce scenes of the Amazon forest, encouraging the rooting of Orchids, Ferns or aquatic plants such as Anubias and Bucephalandras.

They are woods that must be treated thoroughly before being placed in humid terrariums or aquariums as they can affect the balance of, for example, the PH or substances dissolved in water, releasing humic and tannic acids.

To minimize contamination we recommend following the following steps:

  • remove any fragments of bark or small pieces about to fall off;
  • immerse the wood in water for at least 4 days, completely submerged!
  • boil the wood for at least an hour to eliminate insects and bacteria and facilitate the detachment of tannins and humic acid.
  • leave to soak, or the wood should no longer float, and change the water until it is clear and transparent.

Wood can now also be used in the aquarium, most likely once inserted into the aquarium it will produce a quite voluminous white patina due to the temperatures and lights which is called biofilm, which will be much appreciated by your shrimp or fish.
