The latest addition to our varied selection of Catappa bark is this larger, chunkier stuff from Selatan, Indonesia. It's harvested from the trees in a sustainable manner from a small village in Selatan, Indonesia, just for us (hence its namesake).
They're not complete "tubes", like our Indian Catappa Bark, nor lightweight stripes like our Borneo Catappa Bark Strips. Rather, these are chunky pieces of bark that are effective as both a water conditioner and an aesthetic compliment. Bigger, thicker, and more "substantial."
These bark strips will impart a deep "tint" to the water that we love so much around here. And, they have a nice "streambed" aesthetic!
PREPARATION: Boil them for a few minutes, followed by a brief soak in fresh water to achieve complete saturation (and to get them to sink!) prior to use.
ORIGIN: Pontianac, Selatan, Indonesia
NOTE: Because these are a natural product, cut by hand, each one will differ in appearance. The photo shown is to provide an idea of what to expect the product to look like.
