Description

EXO TERRA Equatorial Forest Floor Dual Leaves & Coco Husk Substrate, is a multi layer substrate that allows you to recreate the forest floor as found in natural equatorial forests.

The forest floor is one of the most distinctive features of the equatorial forest ecosystem. It usually consists of two major layers;

  • The top layer mainly consisting of fresh leaf litter
  • The base layer consists of rich organic matter – usually decomposed leaves & wood

The 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 Ardisia leaves provide a soft layer for animals to burrow and cover their secret hideout. Most reptiles and amphibians forage the forest floor in search of food and water.
The top layer covers the actual substrate underneath to facilitate its moisture retention and prevent the soil from drying out. These biodegradable Ardisia leaves are absolutely free of chemicals and can be safely composted in your garden.
The base layer consists of rich organic matter from sustainable ground coconut husk fiber. It is a 100% natural, ecological and biodegradable substrate with great hygroscopic properties. This base layer makes an ideal substrate to create natural planted terrarium set-ups for humidity-loving rptiles, amphibians and invertebrates. Its water retention, natural rooting hormones and anti-fungal properties promote plant growth in your terrarium.
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 resulting in improved soil drainage and healthy plant root aeration.
The top layer of Ardisia leaves keeps the base layer slightly moist, facilitating maintenance by functioning as a natural ecosystem where beneficial organisms will brake down waste products and thus reduce odors.

The Exo Terra Equatorial Forest Floor is heat-treated to reduce bacterial contamination.
