Spider wood nails designs.
Spider wood is also called Rhododendron roots in many regions of the world. It is also called Azalea Roots, Rhododendron Roots, Indian Spider Wood, and Red Spider.
It is red, brown, and tan in color. Its multiple branches protruding from the main body derive its name Spider wood. Also, Spider wood resembles a tree which makes it popular for a “Bonsai” aquascape.
A very interesting fact about Spider wood is every piece is unique. It is used to create three-dimensional depth in large background pieces or as curling vines that ‘link’ your hardscape together like branches.
It is an aquascaper’s dream wood.
