About This Product

Live Oak Leaf Litter (1 Gallon) are the smallest type of leaf litter we sell at Josh's Frogs! Great as a sole leaf litter, Live Oak leaves look even better when mixed with either Sea Grape Leaves or Magnolia Leaves in a naturalistic vivarium. Live Oak Leaves (1 Gallon) break down just a bit faster than some other forms of leaf litter, and seem to lead to an increased abundance of isopods and springtails when used in a naturalistic vivarium.

Leaf Litter performs a very important role in a naturalistic vivarium. Leaf Litter provides shelter, visual barriers, and hiding places for the vivarium inhabitants, such as poison dart frogs. 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 leaf litter will cover approximately 1.5 square feet to the desired depth of 1".

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 degrees F, eliminating potential harmful organisms.
