If you're looking for something truly unique and interesting for your next 'scape, you're going to absolutely LOVE these cool-looking roots. It looks a bit like "Spider Wood." The big difference is the incredibly intricate root systems that most of the specimens possess.
These pieces range in size between 12"-16" (30.48cm-40.64cm)
Derived from the rather invasive Melastoma candidum, these dried roots are carefully procured and selected by hand by fellow fish geeks in Indo, just for us. To our knowledge, these unusual roots have seldom, if ever been available in the U.S. before.
Like its distant cousin, "Spider Wood", this stuff tends to float when first immersed, so you'd probably want to anchor it down in a bucket of fresh water for a few days to get it to saturate and sink.
ORIGIN: Sanggau, West Kalimantan, Borneo
