a piece of wood that I found in a stream. It is now part of my frog pond.
That is a nice looking find my major concern is it will break down very quickly in your Frog pond.
I hadn't thought of that.
don't think so: at least not faster than in the stream... that's nature...
I will have to photograph it regularly, and document the disintegration of the wood, while the growth of plants hopefully proceeds. I'll try to photograph the tadpoles and the frogs. http://frogs.org.au/frogs/species/Litoria/peroni/
Place a few rocks under it to lift it up so the underside of the wood this should keep it moist.
What part of Aust are you?
Wonderful find Don't worry it will take ages to rot down I have a couple of rotting wood pieces one is in my Grandsons frog tank another is in my 30cm Cube both have plants growing on them and doing well.
Had to soak mine for ages to get the tannins out. As yours is in a frog pond it will be fine.
Another thing I do is crush up a root tab and rub it in so the plants get all the ferts they need.
But your one seems to be doing well without the ferts
Keith I am in Sydney.
That rules out on very good garden nursery not that far out of Melbourne.
Ah, well I do visit Melbourne sometimes, I have family there. Would be very interested to know the name of the place (in a p.m. if that is better).
Its Garden World Braeside
You can even get a good meal there as well.
They also have a massive car parking area
I know that place! I've shopped there with my sister.
That makes it a lot easier then.
