I will pour boiling water, soak leaves overnight and rinse before using in tank.

Usual spots :
1. Pasir ris.
2. Behind pandan valley condo.

Also been getting Ketapang leaves from these two spots which may be nearer you.

3. Dropped pin

But pouring hot water will destroy most of the good things alongside the good things, no?

Thanks for the pins! Second one superbly near where I stay!

Don't assume those bought KTP leaves are safe to use directly. For such little money, would suppliers bother to wash it?

I picked mine too. Usually hand wash it before soaking overnight (2 rounds, washing in between each soak). So far so good.

Opposite side of road, younger tree.

More perfect leaves, less holes.

Even green ones can, just need to cure it till shriveled brown.
