What is Spider Wood?Spider Wood is a type of driftwood that is rapidly becoming popular in the aquarium world. The wood is sourced from the roots of various species of the Genus Rhododendron. They are a kind of shrub that develops with roots that are shallow and often over the soil. The root of this shrub gets its name "Spider Wood" because of the peculiar shape of its branches, which often resemble the dead body of a spider. It originates in dense forests in North America as well as regions of Asia. The surroundings are typically packed with shade and bright due to indirect sunlight. The soil they will live in for their entire lives is well-drained and acidic, allowing it to spread easily across vast areas of soil.
