About This Product

THIS CULTURE SHIPS WITH FROGS OR GECKOS, AND IS COVERED UNDER THE $39.99 FLAT RATE ANIMAL SHIPPING OFFER. THERE IS NO ADDITIONAL SHIPPING CHARGE FOR THIS CULTURE, REGARDLESS OF HOW MANY YOU ORDER!

Springtails are tiny arthropods (1-4 mm) and make a great supplimental food for your poison dart frogs. When you seed your tanks with springtails they will reproduce in your terrarium eating mold/fungus. Simply dump the entire culture in your terrarium and mix the substrate in the springtail culture right into your vivarium substrate.

One culture can seed 2-4 terrariums. Cultures are started 1-2 weeks before shipping.

Feed weekly with Josh's Frogs Spring to Life Springtail Food If you are not seeding terrariums, we recommend that you buy a starter culture and use it start a larger culture (we use 5 qt. sterilite containers).  Larger cultures produce better and are less prone to CO2 buildup.  If you use this culture to start a larger culture to feed froglets or seed multiple tanks, allow the culture to grow for a month before use.

Great Quality Springtail Culture

I ordered two of these cultures. They were both full of lots of active springtails. Much better than some others I had previously ordered from another source that were small and had many fewer springtails in them. Great product!

Finally someone that actually ships a decent amount of springtails to truly start a culture. If you need springs to start a culture this is where to get your starters . You get tons.

Do NOT buy Springtails anywhere but here. The quantity you get for the price is unreal. They reproduce non stop. I crack the lid 3 times day to let some fresh air in and that's it. They just keep coming.

Josh's has the best

I ended up using most of my 32oz culture and needed to top off my springtail housing. Both springtail cultures I have bought here have been very active with tons of adults and babies. I also got the springtail food, which is a great help.

Got one with my dart frog order. Made multiple cultures with it and springtails are thriving in each one. Great product for the price.
