The Exo Terra Plantation Soil is a 100% natural, biodegradable terrarium substrate made from sustainable, ground coconut husk fiber grown on plantations in tropical Asia. The unique hygroscopic properties of this ecological substrate regulate the terrarium’s humidity in a natural way and is totally safe for frogs, salamanders and other burrowing or digging animals. Adequate air humidity levels aid in shedding and help prevent respiratory infections.

Exo Terra® Plantation Soil is triple machine washed to remove any residual salt content, then machine dried and heat-treated to reduce bacterial contamination.

The Exo Terra Plantation Soil makes an ideal substrate to create tropical terrarium set-ups for humidity-loving reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates. The unique coir pith used for the Exo Terra Plantation Soil consists of a mixture of short fibres and coco-peat grain sizes ranging from coarse granules to fine clumps resulting in improved soil drainage and aeration. The improved aeration of the substrate promotes the cultivation of healthy waste-reducing organisms keeping your terrarium fresh and clean.

Exo Terra® Plantation Soil is absolutely non-toxic, free of chemicals & pesticides and can be safely composted in your garden.

Exo Terra® Plantation Soil can also be used as an incubation medium because of its hygroscopic properties.

Directions for use:

Place the brick in a 10 L (2.6 gal) bucket and add approximately 3 L (100 fl oz) water. Let it soak for about 30 minutes until it completely absorbs the water and no clumps remain. Stir the substrate to ensure that no compressed parts remain and that the substrate is ready to use. Spread a 2-4” layer (5-10 cm) layer of Exo Terra Plantation Soil on the terrarium floor. Water or mist the substrate according to the humidity level required and use an Exo Terra Hygrometer to monitor the humidity level. Spot clean the bedding on a daily basis, and completely replace with new bedding when necessary.
