About This Product

The Exo Terra Bamboo Forest Floor is a multi layer substrate that allows you to recreate the forest floor as found in natural bamboo forests. The forest floor is one of the most distinctive features of the bamboo forest ecosystem.

It usually consists of two major layers:

  1. Bamboo Leaves (1 Quart) - fresh leaf litter
  2. Coconut Husk Fiber (3 Quarts) - rich, organic matter
  • 100% Natural
  • Multi layer substrate
  • Resembles natural forest floor
  • Keeps soil soft and moist
  • Allows your animals to hide
  • Nutritional substrate for live plants
  • Ideal for natural terrarium set-ups
  • Heat-treated and odor absorbing
  • Made from a sustainable resource
  • Can safely be composted

The top layer consists of sun-dried decorative bamboo leaves from a sustainable resource. With this decorative top layer you can actually create the soft floor covering found in natural bamboo forests. The bamboo leaves provide a soft layer for animals to burrow and cover their secret hideout. Most reptiles and amphibians forage the forest floor in search of food and water. The top layer covers the actual substrate underneath to facilitate its moisture retention and prevent the soil from drying out. These biodegradable bamboo leaves are absolutely free of chemicals and can be safely composted in your garden.

The base layer consists of rich organic matter from sustainable ground coconut husk fiber. It is a 100% natural, ecological and biodegradable substrate with great hygroscopic properties. This base layer 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 Bamboo Forest Floor consists of a mixture of short fiber and coco-peat grain sizes ranging from coarse granules to fine clumps resulting in improved soil drainage and healthy plant root aeration.

The Exo Terra Bamboo Forest Floor is heat-treated to reduce bacterial contamination.

Directions for use:

Spread 2-4” (5-10 cm) of the base layer on the terrarium floor. Water or mist the substrate according to the humidity level required. Place your decorative items in the terrarium, than cover the floor with the top layer of decorative bamboo leaves. Use an Exo Terra Hygrometer to monitor the level. To increase air humidity in well-ventilated terrariums or those with very high humidity requirements, place an Exo Terra terrarium substrate heater underneath the terrarium. Spot clean the bedding on a daily basis, and completely replace with new bedding when necessary.
