Hi all!

-another seedpod question...
has anyone of you ever tried using these long seedpods in a tank?
I “rescued” some, because i thought they looked funny. I’m not sure which subspecies i have (-infact, i’m not even sure if it is Ceratonia siliqua pods, but they sure looks like it).
I know it sounds a bit daring to dump them in a tank, when i’m not 100% sure of the id.
-but whats your experience on using Ceratonia siliqua pods?

Hi all,
Ceratonia siliqua
That is the Carob tree, the one that they get the chocolate substrate from. I've got a plant (grown from a seed) but it has never fruited. I would probably give it a miss, but that would only be a guess.

cheers Darrel
