About This Product

Magnolia leaves hold up very well in humid environments, so they make a great terrarium addition. Magnolia leaves from Josh's Frogs provide hiding spots for your frogs and a place for springtails to congregate. A medium-sized leaf, most leaves measure about 4-7 inches, but can vary quite a bit in length.

Leaf litter performs a very important role in a naturalistic vivarium. It 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 puts 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 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.

Many large leaves per gallon bag

Came with about 15-20 large leaves per gallon bag. I don't know if magnolia leaves mold more quickly than others, but for some reason, these accumulate mold on the underside faster than anything else in my vivarium. Seems kinda strange.

love them

Normally, i use the smaller leaves. But for my Costa Rican Auratus that seem only to love the ground, i chose these for some great hiding spots. Im sure they love me for it too.
