  • Foul smelling

    By on

    After a day or two, the moss began to emit a sickening smell. I had read other reviews about the smell and disregarded them. Huge mistake. Take my advice and skip on this.

  • Smell Made Me Sick

    By on

    I own 3 snakes, 3 leopard geckos, and 5 crested geckos. All shed, so all need moisture. So I though adding this would help w/ that. The smell of this substrate made me sick. I couldn't go in my room for hours afterwards. And had to completely change every pet's substrate the next day. I couldn't take the smell.

  • Quite stinky

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    I hoped that other reviewers were exaggerating the bad odors from this moss, but it really is pretty gross smelling. In our gecko tank that has plenty of air flow it's not too noticeable in the small amount we are using, but in my snakes large tub it reaks. It smells like a fishy river bed. Works good, holds moisture and helped our gecko with his stuck shed. I'm going to use it up, but will try another brand next time. The bricks are very small as well, but they do expand a lot after moistened, but I was expecting them to be the size of coconut substrate bricks and they are much smaller. Good product besides smell. I visit my snake a lot, his enclosure is in my office, and now every time I open I hoped that other reviewers were exaggerating the bad odors from this moss, but it really is pretty gross smelling.

    The forest moss is perfect for my salamander. He is so happy burrowing through the moss. It holds moisture well.

  • Perfect for my humid hide

    By on Top 100 Contributor

    This is perfect for my leopard gecko humid hide. I like things to be kept more natural, so I'm against paper towels. My gecko seems to like it too. It works great for the humid hide and doesn't take much. Easy to replace.

  • Messy and smells weird

    By on

    I agree with other reviewers that this stuff smells AWFUL at first. It mellows out over time to a neutral more mossy smell but I don't think I'll be buying it again.

  • Smells bad

    By on

    It does its intended job. However, it smells horrible. I’ve rinsed it thoroughly a few times now and the sewage smell is overwhelming that the snake wont even hang in it and we ended up taking it out of the tank all together. Maybe I got a bad batch, but I will not be using this product again.

    Holds moisture very well and was easy to unfurl from it's rectangular shape with water. Perfect for keeping the humidity up.

  • Humid Hide Filler

    I have this in a humid hide for my gecko. So i can't smell it as much as other reviewers. It stays moist longer than paper towels. Works as intended
