These beautiful seed pods are among our favorite botanicals! They are carefully collected as fallen specimens from areas free of pesticides or other contaminants, gently cleaned, and sun dried.
“Jungle Pods” have an almost "woody" appearance and texture, and are quite durable. They make perfect little hiding spots for dwarf cichlids, catfish, and other fishes. A perfect natural "prop" to simulate the stream biotope, where branches, seeds, and pods like these fall in and accumulate, adding to the richness of the biotope. Lots of aesthetic and functional possibilities with these pods!
They're about 4” (10.16cm) or so in diameter on average, with openings around 1.75”-2.5" (4.45-6.35cm). These pods will leach some tannins into the water over the long term.
PREPARATION: You need to boil “Jungle Pods” for at least an hour (sometimes a bit more) to really saturate them, because they do float like mad when first immersed.
ORIGIN: Southeast 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!
