I've been soaking some mopani wood for a few days, with daily water changes to remove tannins. These will be used in my paludarium build, locked into the background with GS foam. I was wondering how long I need to let the wood dry before foaming it into the background. Does it have to be completely dry, or would a day of drying be enough?

Thanks :)

I don't think Mopani holds a lot of water.
If the GS foam is the same foam I use it's even better to have the background sprayed with water first. The water makes the foam hold on better. So if the wood is still a bit wet it's no problem.

Like Raf said, a lot of the polyurethane based foams and adhesives actually stick better when put onto a damp surface. Gorilla glue is a polyurethane base and the directions specifically say to damp the surface first. I don't think you have to worry about it.
