Dear Brian,

I would dig around a LOT before treating driftwood on which you will be
planting epihites, as the water repellent MIGHT be toxic to plant roots, and
the 'protective coating chemicals' are probably just that, poisons intended
to kill mold, bactaria, algae and therefor PLANTS! Read about what active
ingredients they contain or what makes them claim to be effective. I`d go
with the natural driftwood.
