Rain Forest 24QT – 26,4L

Rain Forest Terrarium Substrate

The Exo Terra® Rain Forest is a 100% natural, biodegradable reptile substrate mixture made from sustainable Maritime Pine & Sphagnum Moss. Rain Forest Terrarium Substrate is the ideal decorative substrate to create natural planted terrarium set-ups for humidity-loving reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates from tropical rainforest environments. The Rain Forest substrate regulates the 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 is heat-treated to reduce bacterial contamination.

Directions for use:
Spread a 2-4” layer (5-10 cm) of the bark on the terrarium floor. Water or mist the substrate according to the humidity level required. Use an Exo Terra Hygrometer to monitor the level. To increase air humidity in well-ventilated terrariums or those with very high humidity requirements, place an Exo Terra terrarium substrate heater underneath the terrarium. Spot clean the bedding on a daily basis, and completely replace with new bedding when necessary.

Substrates in natural terrariums serve many functions and are not only there for decorative purposes. They play a very important role in the determination of the terrarium's microclimate. The Exo Terra® Tropical Substrates are ideal to create natural planted terrarium set-ups for humidity-loving reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates from tropical environments. The hygroscopic properties of the Exo Terra® Tropical Substrates regulate the terrarium’s relative humidity in a natural way by absorbing and slowly releasing moisture. Adequate relative humidity levels aid in shedding and help prevent respiratory infections. 

Stimulates natural behavior.

The all natural Exo Terra® Tropical Substrates stimulate natural digging and burrowing behavior, and allow reptiles to shape firm nesting burrows similar to their shelters in nature. By slowly releasing moisture at night, the Exo Terra® Tropical Substrates stimulate the natural absorption of moisture by the reptile skin, so that dehydration in tropical animals is much less likely to occur. The unique size and shape of the particles discourage crickets to hide in the substrate.

The Exo Terra® Tropical Substrates are extensively tumbled to smoothen the particles and remove excessive dust, than heat-treated to reduce bacterial contamination. This ecological substrate is the safest on the market for use with reptiles, frogs, salamanders and burrowing & digging animals. The unique size and shape of the bark particles allow frequent irrigation of your plants while still providing good aeration for healthy root growth. This improved aeration promotes a flourishing population of beneficial, nitrifying bacteria, and prevents root rot, making the Exo Terra® Tropical Substrates the safest choice for naturally planted terrarium setup. Exo Terra® Tropical Substrates are absolutely non-toxic, free of chemicals & pesticides and can be safely composted in your garden.
