 Thought  of  uploading  the  setup  that  I  am  using  to  boil  the  mega  driftwood's.
 
 The  driftwood  that  I  collected  from  Jogfalls  was  also  included  the  second  session  of  boiling  for  the  driftwood  I  bought  from  hebbal.
 The  driftwood  I  bought  from  hebbal  already  had  gone  through  6hrs  of  boiling  in  session  1.
 In  session  2  both  the  driftwood  was  boiled  for  6.5  hours.
 The  driftwood  from  Jogfalls  is  sure  to  have  relesed  all  the  Tanin,  before  I  collected  it.
 As  it  was  acquired  from  a  place  where  there  was  good  water  flow  and  the  wood  would  have  been  there  for  ages  to  reach  the  state  it  has  become  when  I  got  it.But  still  it  was  boiled  to  kill  all  the  snail  eggs  It  might  have
 
 Even  after  the  second  session  of  boiling  for  driftwood  the  water  is  still  with  lot  of  Tanin.
 I  am  enjoying  this  process  a  lot.
 I  have  also  attached  the  picture  of  the  water  for  comparison  to  get  an  Idea  of  how  much  tanin  it  release  after  second  session  of  boiling(Please  note  I  had  added  new  water  for  session  2).
 The  water  I  pictured  as  fresh  water  is  the  one  where  the  wood  was  kept  sunk  for  last  three  days  after  the  first  session  of  boiling.So  it  also  has  some  tanin.
 
 The  things  I  noted  was  this.
 
 1.  On  session  1  boiling,  it  took  long  time  for  the  water  to  come  to  boiling  point.  I  think  it  was  because  the  wood  was  taking  time  to  absorb  water  and  get  cooked
 2.  The  wood  sunk  in  just  3  days(which  I  think  is  quick)  after  the  boiling.  It  was  kept  sunk  with  the  help  of  a  small  stone  in  a  water  tank.
 3.  In  session  2  boiling,  the  water  boiled  quickly  as  the  wood  had  completely  absorbed  water  in  the  last  3  days.  But  still  the  amount  of  tanin  it  released  is  huge.
 
 Anyways  I  think  the  tanin  will  be  completely  over  after  keeping  it  for  6months  in  water.
 The  water  will  be  changed  every  day  as  that  water  will  be  used  for  irrigation.
 
 Please  let  me  know  if  I  need  to  do  anything  more  other  than  this....
 
 
 Do  I  need  to  boil  it  again(No  problem  for  the  same)?.
 Do  it  really  need  6months  to  completely  release  the  tanin?.
 Do  all  the  snail  eggs  die  after  6  hrs  of  boiling?
 
 
 
 I  hope  I  will  get  enough  finance  to  complete  the  project  earlier  than  6  months.  I  am  ready  to  do  water  change  in  my  tank  I  cant  wait  Sad  .
 But  the  project  seem  to  take  a  lot  of  money  so  the  driftwood  seem  to  get  enough  time  Chuckle  .
 I  will  keep  updating  this  thread  on  the  progress....

 I  just  wanted  to  update  couple  of  other  driftwoods  I  had  collected.
 Both  of  them  where  collected  during  the  collection  trip  in  Sagar.
 I  will  be  updating  that  thread  as  well  since  I  just  got  the  pictures.
 
 
 
 The  wood  from  Mavinaholey  is  My  Favorite  as  it  has  lot  of  patches  since  it  was  eaten  by  mites  as  well
 
 
 
 
 
 
 The  below  one  was  a  root  I  got....  I  had  cleaned  it  up  but  the  picture  is  not  showing  the  full  beauty  of  it

 You  would  be  able  to  achieve  your  dreams  definitely  Jabba  with  all  hardwork  you  have  been  doing  and  especially  with  DIYs,  not  exceeding  the  budget.   Very  nice.
