Josh's Frogs BioBedding TROPICAL Bioactive Substrate (10 quarts) x 6 bags
BioBedding Tropical is the perfect substrate for your tropical bioactive enclosure, and is great for ball pythons. This substrate is a unique blend of organic and inorganic ingredients, trace elements, and beneficial fungi that serves to jump start the bioactive environment. Biobedding Tropical helps maintain humidity while providing a substrate your pets can dig and lay eggs in, all while helping to maintain healthy populations of microfauna.

Dried Sheet Moss (1 gallon)
Josh’s Frogs Dried Sheet Moss (1 Gallon Bag) is 100% real moss that has been preserved by using heat and colored using food safe dyes. Dried Sheet Moss can be maintained as it is by keeping it dry. This is, for the most part, a decorative moss and it will not grow. If there are spores still viable after the preservation process, they may sprout but you must water the moss regularly with distilled or reverse osmosis water and keep it under bright light. It will most likely turn yellow/brown and decompose, which is a natural process. This moss can be placed on top of a damp planting substrate such as sphagnum moss, ABG mix, or potting soil. You can also attach this moss to wood or rock.
Live Oak Leaf Litter (1 gallon)
Leaf Litter performs a very important role in a naturalistic vivarium. Leaf litter provides shelter, visual barriers, and hiding places for the vivarium inhabitants. Mimicking the role of dead plant matter in the rainforest, leaf litter also put nutrients back into the environment, providing the stuff plants and microfauna need to thrive! Josh's Frogs Leaf Litter is collected from a pesticide and herbicide free environment. One gallon of leaves will cover approximately 1.5 square feet to the desired depth of 1 inch.
Although our leaves are collected in a pesticide and herbicide free environment, many choose to further treat vivarium decor. Leaves can be baked to a temperature of 140°F, eliminating potential harmful organisms.
Cork Flats x 2
Cork Flats are sections of bark from trees farmed in Portugal. Cork is a completely renewable resource, as the trees can be harvested every 7 years.ork Flats make great decor or hides for your reptiles or amphibians, or can be used to make a background in a vivarium or terrarium. Cork Flats from Josh's Frogs will hold up in a wide range of environments, and make a great addition to any vivarium or terrarium!
Large cork flats are between 12 and 15 inches long and 7-9 inches wide, weighing approximately 1-2 lbs.
Clean-Up-Crew Bioactive Bundle
You will receive an 8 oz container with 25+ Dwarf Tropical White Isopods and an 8 oz container containing temperate springtails. We've found that these two species are the best for most bioactive enclosures.
