Sphagnum Moss

100 g (Item No.: 34170)

Product description

 

Our Sphagnum-Moss  is 100 % natural moss for the terrarium in the form of a compact tile.
The Sphagnum-Moss tile swells up by adding ca. 1.5 liters of tepid water which actually produces ca. 4.5 liters of ready to use moss from such a small size.
It is ideally suitable for raising the humidity in the terrarium and keeping it stable over a longer period.
Especially those terrarium inhabitants with high humidity requirements appreciate its qualities.
Sphagnum-Moss has enormously versatile uses whether required to facilitate moulting for snakes and lizards, as padding in the so-called wet box or as a substrate for the deposit of eggs as well as for decoration.
Plants also appreciate Sphagnum-Moss as it offers a perfect nutrient-rich basis.

*Wet-Box:
A wet-box offers the inhabitants the possibility of replenishing moisture.
It facilitates the moulting process of the animals and provides cooling on hot days, raises hydration through the skin while also improving the skin environment and as a result prevents skin diseases. This is also used by some genera to deposit eggs.
Perfectly suitable as a wet box are e.g. the HOBBY Wood Cave 1 + 2 or thee HOBBY Eckhöhle Bark 
Caution: The filling material needs to be regularly changed in order to prevent the growth of mould!
