How We Protect Your Plants For Transit
We sell only bare root plants. We dip the roots in tera-sorb silicone gel to retain ample moisture for transit and surround with plastic. This provides superior protection for plants in transit for up to 12 days.
Upon Receipt Of Your Plants
Open your plants and inspect the same day received. We offer 3 days to report any problems with your order. Bare root plants need to be planted within 2-3 days of receipt unless weather prohibits. Store in a cool place and keep roots moist and covered with plastic until they can be planted. Water daily for the first week after planting.
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 that 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 tree 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 near the water. Water willow and Appalachian sedge look great against aquarium wood as well. You can use natural or synthetic versions of these flowers to create an attractive table centerpiece.
