Commonly used as an alternative to Catappa Indian almond leaves in South East China. Eucalyptus Seed Pods help keep diseases at bay due to their antibacterial properties. A great addition to a Malaysian blackwater aquarium biotope.

Tannins Released: Medium

COMMON QUESTION: Customers have reached out to us regarding concerns about the use of Eucalyptus Seed Pods and the release of essential oil. Out of all parts of the Eucalyptus tree, the seed pods contain the least amount of essential oil, with the bark and sap having the highest traces. 

After boiling the seed pods for the recommended time, the essential oil released is minimal. This is why they are used by many aquarists in parts of Southeast Asia, as it is believed the small trace of essential oil after prepping the seed pods is just enough to have a positive antibacterial effect on the aquarium. 

All our botanicals are organically sourced, free from harmful pesticides and naturally sun-dried without the use of chemicals.
