I got some driftwood from the ocean last week. Do you think that leaving them out in the rain for about 5 days, and then letting them dry in the sun (yes, the weather is cooperating) would get rid of the salt, or do I need to use distilled water. If I need to do the latter, how do I get a whole bunch of distilled water?
Thanks

I would soak it for a couple days in water, changing the water each day. That way you dont end up with dead plants...or even a dehydrated frog.

It should be okay

I have done the same thing (puget sound) and it has worked fine for me. The wood keeps for a really long time. Mine has no rot on it at all. I let the rain wash it out, and hosed it down really well. I even have some micro fauna come out of it, and the froglets seem to really enjoy those. So try and see. I had no problems with mine.
