Azalea Root - Millenium Tree - Curl Wood (per 100 gr)
Azalea is a beautiful family of plants that can be found in China, Japan, Korea and the United States. Roots of Azalea are known for the sinuous, graceful shapes. Well known for use in the aquarium is Spiderwood, which are also the roots of Azalea. This form of Azalea Roots is less well known, but this type of root wood is just as beautiful.
Azalea Root appeals to the imagination and it is almost impossible to imagine that this was formed by nature. With numerous winding branches and deep structures, it is shown once again that the best artist is still Mother Nature. Making a nice layout in the aquarium is therefore quite easy with this hardscape material. It should not be missing in a forest scape.
In the aquarium the Azalea roots will float first. After some time it will have become engorged and will remain under water. There may still be a bit of mold released and cover the wood as a blanket, but this will disappear on its own. After the running-in phase, the wood can be used in the aquarium for a very long time without any problems. It will also be fine to use in the terrarium/paludarium.

Azalea Root Instructions for Use
Before use in the aquarium, the rootwood must be pre-soaked long enough to ensure that the wood does not float to the top. Soaking the wood in warm water accelerates this process. Depending on the thickness of the wood, it takes 1-2 days, but can sometimes take weeks. OUR TIP: To prevent the wood from floating, it can be weighted by attaching a stone with a Tie-wrap. It is completely normal for Azalea Root to produce a white slimy coating in the initial period. This is a type of fungus and will go away on its own and is harmless. In the first weeks the wood turns a little red, but over time the wood turns brown to dark brown. Because this is a natural product, it can release substances into the aquarium. Use is at your own risk.
