ProRep Bio Life Desert Substrate 10 litre SMT910
Your Shopping Basket
Bio Life DESERT - an ideal creation for building an ecosystem and planted terrarium for arid desert species.
This substrate is an ideal mixture of soils and sands, all created with the pH level required to ensure that living creatures and helpful bacteria, such as springtails and woodlice, can thrive and maintain the cleanliness required for the terrarium. The rich substrate also means that it encourages plant growth, and with the correct lighting in place, they can create a beautiful planted system that will look beautiful in any room.
Because an arid environment set up is dry, with low humidity, then it can be more difficult to maintain than forest set ups. With the proper design however, it is possible to recreate a moist zone in the base of the terrarium to mimic the moisture commonly found underground in deserts. This moist zone provides a reservoir of water which plants and microorganisms can access, while the surface of the substrate remains dry.
Desert planted terrariums are best suited to small occupants that do not damage the plants.
