What It Says On The Box:
This is an ideal all round base substrate for most invertebrates and by far the popular substrate with Tarantula keepers. Its hold water well (up to 600%), allows easy burrowing and is pest free as contains no nutrients that attract fungus gnats. As it holds water well you dampen the substrate depending on how high you want the humidity. This substrate is also ideal for mixing with other substrates such as vermiculite and sand. Look good when mixed with bark chips substrates to create more naturalistic set ups or blends for specific species.
