A New England Herpetoculture Product:
Springtails are a critical part of the detritivore "cleanup crew" of a vivarium and can also be used as a feeder for smaller species. Folsomia candida is the fastest to reproduce, easiest to care for, and most commonly used species in the hobby. It's our best selling species of Springtail by far, and has been one of our best sellers for 9+ years now. One of our ultra high quality freshly started cultures contains enough individuals to seed most larger sized enclosures, or several smaller ones. Because we use our best-selling vivarium substrate as a media for these cultures, it's appropriate & safe to simply dump our Springtail Culture directly into your vivarium to begin establishing a population within. We recommend doing this after adding plants but before adding leaf litter/moss, although it's totally fine to add Spingtails at any time. Once added, the springs will populate the habitat and should sustain a healthy population indefinitely. Each culture is fed with some of our Springtail Food before shipping, to ensure it can last as long as it takes to build a vivarium. As always, our cultures are absolutely guaranteed to be free of mites and other microfauna.
