I use stuff from outside. I rinse it well and bake it at like 230 farenheit give or take for a couple of hours. Never had problems with it.I have never really done this before, so I was wondering if anyone collects bark, etc. from outside, whether it is safe, and whether anyone thinks "nuking" is necessary.
Thanks a lot. Just "fact checking."
Maybe I should use bark from a different tree next time. It is not in general that bark from outside catches mold quicker. Anyway, cork bark is cheap, so it is not a biggie for me.Thanks, everyone!
@Michiel, thanks for telling me that stuff from outside catches mold faster than commercial bark. I, like you, have mostly (actually all right now) tropical species. Thanks everyone again.
