Exo Terra Equatorial Forest Floor Substrate

Exo Terra Equatorial Forest Floor Substrate –

A multi layer substrate that allows you to recreate the forest floor as found in natural equatorial forests. One of the most distinctive features of the equatorial forest ecosystem.

It usually consists of two major layers;

  1. Top layer mainly consisting of fresh leaf litter
  2. Base layer consists of rich organic matter – usually decomposed leaves & wood

Top layer consists of sun dried decorative Ardisia leaves from a sustainable resource. With this decorative top layer you can actually create the soft floor covering found in natural equatorial forests.

The top layer covers the actual substrate underneath to facilitate its moisture retention and then prevent the soil from drying out. 100% natural, ecological and biodegradable substrate with great hygroscopic properties.

Water retention, natural rooting hormones and anti-fungal properties also promote plant growth in your terrarium.

Key Features:

  • 100% Natural
  • Multi layer substrate
  • Resembles natural forest floor
  • Also keeps soil soft and moist
  • Allows your animals to hide
  • Nutritional substrate for live plants
  • Ideal for natural terrarium set-ups
  • Also heat-treated and odour absorbing
  • Made from a sustainable resource

The unique coir pith used for the Exo Terra Equatorial Forest Floor consists of a mixture of short fiber and coco-peat grain sizes ranging from coarse granules to fine clumps then resulting in improved soil drainage and healthy plant root aeration.

Heat-treated to also reduce bacterial contamination.

Directions for use: Spread 2-4″ (5-10 cm) of the base layer on the terrarium floor. Also 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.
