These botanicals are actually the bracts (modified leaves) of the Coco Palm (Cocos nucifera). Yet another "featherweight" botanical, which is much like a leaf in texture, appearance, and use.
They are perfect as another component in your "leaf litter" biotope. They're about 3" (7.62cm) in length, and 2"(5.08cm) wide on average.
PREPARATION: You can either boil them for at least 30 minutes, or (if you're the patient type) waterlog them with a 1-week room temperature freshwater soak.
ORIGIN: South America/Asia
NOTE: These are a natural product, and display variation in color, size, and texture. Each pod is unique! The photo serves as a reasonable representation of what to expect.
All of our aquatic botanicals are intended for ornamental aquarium or terrarium use only. Please use common sense and take the time to boil or soak all botanicals prior to using them, to reduce the possibility of problems. Always go slow when introducing any botanicals into your systems, so you can judge the effect they have on your fishes and plants. They are not intended for human consumption. DO NOT INGEST!
