Upon Receipt Of Your Plants
Upon receipt of your plants, unpack and unwrap the roots and mist with water. Plant within 24-48 hours. If you can not plant within this time frame, put your plants in a cool location (ex- basement, garage or cellar) and water the roots daily. Cover them back up with the plastic so they will not dry out until you can plant them. After planted, water every evening after the sun goes down for 5 days.
There are a few types of aquarium wood that you can use to adorn a water habitat
If you want to make your lakeside property more inviting or need safe forms of rot-free wood for your aquarium, this wood is an ideal choice.
Bogwood is the most popular aquarium wood. This wood is developed in a bog environment and is preserved through anaerobic. However, bogwood can be expensive, so most homeowners will select an affordable variation. Cost-effective pieces of bogwood are dried outside instead of going through the anaerobic process.
Aquarium wood has a natural hue and provides security and living for tiny aquatic animals
Bogwood comes from pine or oak trees. Each of these trees provides a different wood hue; pine bogwood is a reddish-bronze color and oak bogwood is jet black. You can also make your aquarium wood from various bark, including pear, cherry, sycamore, birch, and apple. Once you gather the wood, soak and dry it before placing them in an aquatic environment. If you're not sure how to create aquarium wood, it's best to purchase the wood from a reputable vendor.
If you use aquatic wood in your seasonable aquarium, you can take the wood out of the aquarium and use it for your outdoor landscape design, i.e. rose gardens or small flower beds. The wood gives these natural spaces a vintage Western feel. The petrified wood is also ideal for lining ponds and rivers. It won't tarnish or rot regardless of the weather, and you can also use the wood for indoor decoration.
Aquarium wood also pairs nicely with rock cap moss or carpet moss if you want to use the wood for a decorative outdoor setting that isn't near the water. Water willow and Appalachian sedge look great against aquarium wood as well. You can use real or synthetic versions of these flowers to create an attractive table centerpiece.
