Advertisement When I got my T enclosures set up, I went out and found a good branch, debarked it and hollowed it to make two real-wood hides for my Ts. Because they are real and not corkbark, I was curious if any mold that grows on them is going to be harmful for the Tarantulas or just eat at the wood? I've already had a few spots of molding on the two pieces a few weeks back, and I took them out and let them dry out completely, then microwaved them for three minutes (I still smell burning wood in there from that lol) and hoped that that would kill any spores that might be on the wood and prevent further outbreaks, but I really don't know much about it all. Assuming mold does come back, should I just toss the pieces of wood out completely? I don't like the T enclosures being so bare, but at the same time I don't want to go paying $15 a piece for plastic logs or decorations of the kind, and I certainly don't want anything in there that will harm the tarantulas. What would you guys advise? No real wood? As always, thank you to those that help less-informed hobbyists!
