Create a tropical habitat for your pet with Exo Terra Plantation Soil Tropical Terrarium Reptile Substrate. Substrate is necessary to the health and well-being of your pet because it absorbs waste, helps control humidity levels and encourages burrowing. Exo Terra Plantation Soil Tropical Terrarium Reptile Substrate is made from compressed coconut husk fiber from the plantations of tropical Asia. This ecological substrate is ideal for increasing humidity in the terrarium and is safe for frogs, salamanders and burrowing or digging animals. The substrate can also be used as an incubation medium and as a nutritional planting soil for live plants.

Exo Terra Plantation Soil Tropical Terrarium Reptile Substrate is made from compressed coconut husk fiber from the plantations of tropical Asia and is a 100% natural substrate
Safe for frogs, salamanders and burrowing or digging animals
Ideal for natural terrarium set-ups and serves as nutritional substrate for live plants
Increases humidity in terrariums and stimulates natural digging and burrowing behavior
Place the brick in a 2.6-gallon bucket and add 100 fl oz water. Let it soak for about 30 minutes until it completely absorbs the water. Stir the substrate to ensure that no clumps remain and that the substrate is ready to use. Spread a 1-2" layer of Exo Terra Plantation Soil on the terrarium floor (up to 4" when used for burrowing animals or as planting soil). Water or mist the substrate according to the humidity level required and use an Exo Terra Hygrometer to monitor the humidity level.
It’s actually a 8 quart bag instead of 7.2 quart!!
Great for tarantulas

I apparently need to always keep this on hand as I am getting tarantulas as if they were Pokemon and I gotta catch em all. They should each have a few inches of substrate depending on the species and this substrate seems to be a favorite.

After looking at many small pet blogs, I found that plantation soil was a safe digging substrate for my mice and other digging rodents. I gave them a little box with this soil in it with treats hidden in it and they absolutely love it.
