Adequate air humidity levels aid in shedding and help prevent respiratory infections. The Exo Terra Plantation Soil makes an ideal substrate to create natural planted terrarium set-ups for humidity-loving reptiles, 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 Plantation Soil consists of a mixture of short fibers and coco-peat grain sizes ranging from coarse granules to fine clumps resulting in improved soil drainage and healthy plant root aeration.
The improved aeration also promotes the cultivation of healthy waste-reducing organisms keeping your terrarium fresh and clean. Exo Terra Plantation Soil is triple machine washed to remove any residual salt content, then machine dried and heat-treated to reduce bacterial contamination. Exo Terra Plantation Soil can also be used as an incubation medium because of its hygroscopic properties. Exo Terra Coco Husk is absolutely non-toxic, free of chemicals & pesticides, and can be safely composted in your garden.
