Driftwood vs. Resin shaped like driftwood...

I googled this, but I didn't come up with anything.

Currently, I have mopani shaped resin in a couple of my tanks, but I was thinking about trying real wood in the next one (a fiver that I ordered and am waiting to be delivered). However, doesn't wood rot when it's wet? What do you do when the wood rots and all your plants are rooted to it?

I'm thinking about chickening out and sticking to rocks - rocks don't rot

Supposedly since Mopani wood is so very dense, it's decay rate is so slow you really won't have a problem. I have a friend who has had a huge piece of it in his tank for about 6 years, and the only problem he's had is that his corys and amano shrimp love to clean the surface so much that they create a fine layer of wood dust in the tank.
