Bark Chips is a 100% natural, biodegradable reptile substrate made from sustainable wood bark. The ideal decorative substrate for humidity-loving reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates from tropical and forest environments.
Its hygroscopic properties regulate the terrarium’s humidity in a natural way by absorbing and slowly releasing moisture. Stimulate’s natural digging and burrowing behavior, and discourage crickets to hide in the substrate.
Directions for use:
Spread a 1-2” layer (3-5 cm) of the bark on the terrarium floor. Water or mist the substrate according to the humidity level required. Use an Hygrometer to monitor the level.
To increase air humidity in well-ventilated terrariums or those with very high humidity requirements, place an terrarium substrate heater underneath the terrarium. The small chip-size of the bark increases heat conductivity even when left dry.
Spot clean the bedding on a daily basis, rinse the substrate in hot water for intermediate cleaning, and completely replace with new bedding every 8 weeks or when necessary.
