    Know the actual size of your pet BEFORE you purchase substrate.

    By NewFrogMom on Sep 21, 2021

    My daughter and I prepared for weeks before purchasing her Pacman frog. The terrarium was set-up, succulents were planted, temperature and humidity were spot on, even the mealworms were alive and waiting. My daughter told me that a Pacman frog is about as big as my palm, and to make sure that I purchase substate large enough so that he/she can borrow. Which I did, and substrate was soaked, spread and misted each day until our new friend arrived. Turns out that a Pacman will grow to be the size of the palm of my hand!! Lol! Our gal or guy was only about 3/4” cube! New substrate ordered!! We’ll save the remaining bricks for when our frog is much bigger!

    Not What I Thought

    By Natalie on Aug 29, 2021

    So, the fault may be mine in not knowing what the difference between husk & fiber? but this stuff did not work for my needs which was for my worms. It was 0 stars for that. Another brand was much better. The chunks are large and not at all like the stuff I was used to getting which was more like dirt. I would say it was considerably less broken down then what i thought & the worms dont even seem to break it down & they make everything disappear in short order. So anyone looking for worm substrate, this is the wrong kind.

    Overall a good choice!

    By Jeszi on Apr 12, 2021

    This was my first time using compressed substrate and it absorbed SO quickly! It was very easy to do and the instructions were very clear. I just don't like how stringy it is. I wish it were more like chips because the stringy husk gets caught in my snakes' mouths a lot.

    coco husk brick

    By dolly on Feb 16, 2021

    this did not absorb as much water as the more powdery coco product. it was much easier to break up though.

    too stringy

    By trey on Oct 26, 2020

    I have been ordering this coconut husk for about a year and a half and I have always loved it. It’s perfect for holding humidity in my ball python enclosure. However the bricks I just ordered were so stringy, with hardly any actual coconut husk chips. The chunks of husk that were in it are very big

    Useful for planted terrariums

    By Rae507 on Oct 13, 2020 top500Contributor

    I don't use this straight for any of our reptiles, hermit crabs or amphibians because it is too chunky, but it is the perfect addition into soil mixes to offer aeration. Also great for protecting the base of plants! Have never had a bad brick, the quality has always been perfect.

    Really Good Stuff

    By JennyW85 on Jun 1, 2020 top50Contributor

    I don't forsee me ever using anything else. It holds humidity well and it is easy to just pick up the poop. I don't have to do full cleanings that often either. Just when it starts to smell, which is about every other month.
