I'd go only with deadwood, personally.

Saps and such can have toxins in them, plus can cause ammonia issues when the cells start to break down in water.
i thought about that but i do weekly WCs mostly around 50% so im thinking any nasties that would be leaching are diluted/removed with the WCs enough to be safe.

its been 4mos and no problems :knockwood:
