I have some cholla wood with some mosses attached... it still floats and i prefer to boil for safety but will that kill the moss? If so will putting in a microwave kill off the bad with out harming the moss?

True boiling water takes the skin off people, it will certainly do the moss in! Lots of people think they get boiling water out of their faucets but that is really less than 150 degrees in most cases. That's a long way from boiling.

Ditto Zapins: Tie the wood to a rock. Holding it under water seems to help it sink better than allowing it to float.
Got to say this is true!
For one reason wood soaks better in deeper water, we might look at water pressure. If we could put the wood down 20-30 feet it might cut the soaking time in half but then that gets real awkward for most of us?
