Exo Terra Equatorial Forest Floor, 8qt
Appropriate substrate is an important part of any reptile, amphibian, or invertebrate enclosure. The right substrate enhances the function of a naturalistic terrarium, regulating humidity, cushioning the animal's body, and providing a digging/burrowing medium.
Exo Terra Equatorial Forest Floor is a two-part substrate designed to recreate the look and function of a tropical forest floor. Coconut fiber mimics the effects of organic-rich soil, while sun-dried Ardisia leaf litter mimics the look and function of fallen leaves. Leaf litter additionally contributes to humidity and also functions as a favorite hiding place of terrestrial species.
Exo Terra Equatorial Forest Floor is heat-treated to reduce bacterial contamination.
Instructions for Use:
Spread 2-4” of the base layer on the terrarium floor. Water or mist the substrate according to the humidity level required. Place your decorative items in the terrarium, than cover the floor with the top layer of decorative Ardisia leaves. Use an Exo Terra Digital Hygrometer to monitor humidity.
Spot clean the bedding on a daily basis, and completely replace with new bedding every 3-6 months as needed.
