Tropical Terrarium Substrate

Exo Terra Plantation Soil is made from compressed coconut husk fibre from the plantations of tropical Asia. This ecological substrate is ideal for increasing humidity in the terrarium and is totally safe for frogs, salamanders and burrowing or digging animals. The substrate can also be used as an incubation medium because of its hygroscopic properties. This 100% natural substrate can even be used as a nutritional planting soil for live plants in a terrarium set-up.

Place brick in a 10 L bucket and add 3 L of water. Let the brick soak for about 30 minutes until the coconut fibre completely absorbs all the water and no clumps remain. Stir the substrate to ensure that no compressed parts remain and the substrate is ready for use.
