Custom Background Texture Mix

Specifically formulated to add a dark, detailed texture to custom terrarium backgrounds

NEHERP Custom Background Mix
Developed as a better looking, better performing alternative to using other textured coatings when building custom backgrounds. The product is a carefully mixed blend of Canadian organic peat moss, shredded coconut husks, and coconut fiber. The peat moss helps make the mixture darker, while shredded coconut husks add a more detailed texture than coconut fiber can provide alone. Most epiphytic vines & trailing plants will be able to climb up & grow on a custom background with ease.
Price Range: $5.29-$29.99

Fruit Fly Media

Our best selling, great performing feeder fly media

NEHERP Fruit Fly Media
Carefully developed & constantly tweaked over the course of 5+ years, our premium NEHERP Melanogaster "no mix" fly media is precisely formulated to maximize the lifespan & production of feeder flies for small Reptiles & Amphibians. Our media produces extremely quickly, smells great, and continues to produce for a long period of time. It is extremely absorbent and requires no mixing, so cultures can be built extremely quickly without a mess. Each bag sold includes complete instructions on how to build your own cultures. In our most recent testing of our V.4 media against 3 other brands, ours proved to be the best media in terms of longevity & production for D. melanogaster flies. (It works well with D. hydei, too.) You won't be disappointed!
As of this writing (late 2015), a V.5 prototype media is being tested, and will be designed with D. hydei in mind.

By far one of our best sellers. Our live moss is 100% all natural, pesticide & dye free. It'll grow upward and outward in well lit vivariums with high humidity. Our moss is sold pre-processed in resealable bags, and is safe for immediate use in vivariums. Can be mounted epiphytically or terrestrially, depending on the goals for your application. This species is perfectly suited to vivarium conditions. Since 2009, we're the only terrarium plant supplier that pre-processes moss for you! Our moss thrives on either NEHERP or ABG substrate, and can tolerate a wide variety of lighting conditions ranging from partial shade to full sun. Please note that the moss pictured above had about 2-3 months to acclimate, and will require time to grow & become that lush. Please check out our moss caresheet for advice on how to grow it successfully.

Live Moss Slurry

A live moss mix slurry made from NEHERP’s custom blend of different species

NEHERP Live Moss Slurry Packaging NEHERP Live Moss Slurry Growing On Cork Bark NEHERP Live Moss Slurry Growing Epiphytically NEHERP Live Moss Slurry Growing On Ghostwood
NEHERP Live Moss Slurry Packaging NEHERP Live Moss Slurry Growing On Ghostwood
Our NEHERP Live Moss Slurry is a concentrated blend of different moss & plant species that can be used to initiate moss growth on different terrarium decor. Our mix will acclimate quickly in most temperate, subtropical, and tropical vivaria when relative humidity averages 75% or higher. It can be successfully planted in crevices in wood/rocks/backgrounds, on substrate, on tree fern panels, or simply spread over leaf litter or substrate for a grown-in forest floor look as it acclimates. Since our mix is prepared using live moss & plants, acclimation will begin to visually occur within 3-4 weeks in most cases. Once acclimated, the growth will spread to nearby backgrounds, wood decor, and rocks. Depending on the amount of light available to the mix, different species will out-grow others to ensure at least some nice looking growth even in fairly dim areas of an enclosure. Made fresh every week here at NEHERP.
