Exo Terra Rain Forest Substrate, 8qt
Exo Terra Rain Forest is a 100% natural, biodegradable reptile substrate mixture made from sustainable Maritime Pine and sphagnum moss. This substrate can be used to create natural planted terrarium setups for humidity-loving reptiles, amphibians, and invertebrates from tropical rainforest environments.
Exo Terra Rain Forest Substrate works to regulate your terrarium's humidity in a natural way by absorbing and slowly releasing moisture. Its hygroscopic properties is maximized by adding natural sphagnum moss to the mixture. Adequate air humidity levels aid in shedding and help prevent respiratory infections. The unique size and shape of the bark particles, in combination with natural sphagnum moss, allow frequent irrigation of your plants while still providing good aeration for healthy root growth.
Exo Terra Rain Forest substrate is heat-treated to reduce bacterial contamination.
Instructions for Use:
Spread a 2-4” layer of substrate on the terrarium floor. Water or mist the substrate according to the humidity level required. Use an Exo Terra Hygrometer to monitor the humidity level.
Spot clean the bedding on a daily basis, and completely replace with new bedding when necessary at least every 3-6 months.
