A complete springtail culture, aged 7-14 days, started on clay and packaged in an 8-ounce sealed container.
One highly populated culture is suitable for up to a 20-gallon enclosure.
Springtails (Folsomia candida) are tiny arthropods that serve many purposes when used as "Bioactive Tank Cleaners," aiding in breaking down and processing sheds, decaying plant matter, mold, and waste. Springtails can also be a great source of supplemental food for tiny neonatal lizards, dart frogs, and other forest floor-dwelling animals.
After adding your Bio Dude culture to your bioactive terrarium, these springtails will readily reproduce and create a sustainable population in the terrarium. If you decide to keep them in the container so you can continually pull from monthly or weekly, be sure to feed Bio Dude's Springtail Grub.
When kept in their container, springtails can quickly double their population every 5-6 weeks. As long as you keep the culture from drying out with a simple weekly misting and keep them fed by replacing a small amount of food when they have eaten all of theirs, this culture is able to reproduce for months!
Before and after photos were provided to show the population boom our culture had over the course of 4 weeks.
These springtails will thrive in Bio Dude's Terra Flora, Terra Fauna, Terra Firma (more humid Firma setups), and Terra Aranea (more humid Aranea setups)
Please Note: We ship these springtails via Fed Ex Express 2 day. We cannot ship them via USPS. Want to upgrade to overnight for an additional $25 in shipping? Reach out to us at email@example.com
