Despite clearing dead wood can be a laborious work, the actual process is relatively simple. To prepare the juniper procumbens below for the exhibit, I used the toothbrush and water to scrub the dead wood and debris then rinsed. A few hours later, after the wood had a chance to dry, I painted lime sulfur on the deadwood. Within an hour or so, sulfur yellow disappeared leaving behind the characteristic white color.

I chose a 100% as part of deadwood was being treated for the first time, while other branches had been lime-sulphide before. By going with a strong solution, the idea was to make the dead wood, as even colored-possible.
