ProRep Bio Life Desert Substrate, 10 litre

Bio active substrates are designed to allow the maintenance of living ecosystems inside the terrarium. ProRep Bio-Life substrate is carefully blended from a mixture of ingredients to provide the optimum combination of structure, PH and nutrient content for plants from arid environments. When used in a planted terrarium, a living ecosystem can be created where the terrarium occupants co-exist with the plants and microorganisms to create a self-sustaining ecosystem. The microorganisms digest waste material, which is in turn taken up by the plants for growth, locking away harmful nitrogen while creating a living, natural habitat. Because an arid environment set up is dry, with low humidity, then it can be more difficult to maintain than forest set ups. With the proper design however, it is possible to recreate a moist zone in the base of the terrarium to mimic the moisture commonly found underground in deserts. This moist zone provides a reservoir of water which plants and microorganisms can access, while the surface of the substrate remains dry.

  • Optimum structure, PH and nutrient content
  • Great for desert species
  • Can be planted into
  • Best kept dry
  • 10L bag

ProRep Bio Life Drainage Medium, 10 litre

ProRep Drainage Medium is produced by firing ash at a high temperature. As it fires the air bubbles in the material expand to form a honeycomb of interconnected chambers and create an inert, hard and lightweight material that will hold moisture and provides a large surface area for the growth of beneficial bacteria. Used in the base of bio-active terrariums it creates a reservoir of water which moistens the substrate from below and helps to create a natural moisture gradient. The large surface area within each ball provides the ideal habitat for beneficial bacteria which will neutralise potentially harmful waste products formed within the ecosystem.

  • Inert, hard and lightweight
  • Holds Moisture
  • Large surface area for beneficial bacteria
  • Used in the base of bio-active terrariums
  • Produced by firing ash at a high temperature

Arcadia Earth Mix Arid Substrate 10 Litres

EarthMix-Arid has been formulated by experts to suit the ?Wild-Like? needs of animals from the worlds more ?Arid? Terrain. These ecosystems include those referred to as being; Arid, Scrubland, Savanah and Emergent Desert.

EarthMix-Arid uses our original ?EarthMix? as a base with an added 30% Certified ?Organic? Scottish Volcanic rock dust. Our Volcanic rock is not only totally natural and mineral positive but is also sourced from an ethical Scottish source.

EarthMix-Arid is a clean, safe to use substrate with no non-natural particulates.

EarthMix-Arid will not only allow the keeper to grow plants that are adapted to these Arid regions but it will also help to provide Nutritional, Mental and Physical enrichment for animals through natural digging and food collection.

EarthMix-Arid will also help to support certain custodian species used in Bio-Active systems. These species originating from and tolerating hotter, drier climates.

EarthMix and EarthMix-Arid are the ULTIMATE choice for the forward thinking Bio-Active keeper.

EarthMix-Arid is suitable for use with any species from dry scrubland areas such as; Bearded Dragons, Leopard Geckos, Bosc and other Monitors, Agamas from Arid or scrubland areas, Sandfish and other Scrubland lizards, Scrubland Tortoises, Scrubland dwelling

Snakes and Inverts from Arid terrain.

Arcadia EarthPro BioRevitiliser 450g

Arcadia Reptile EarthPro Bio-Revitaliser is an easy to use and very potent Bio-Active system feed, it can be thought of as an organic fertiliser. This product is made from UK collected Worm castings (a potent source of full spectrum amino acids and minerals essential for plant growth) and Organic Volcanic rock (one of nature?s secrets of sustained plant growth through its full spectrum mineral content). This method will not only help to feed a mineral depleted system, ensuring explosive plant growth but it can be thought of as part of full spectrum nutrition in its own right. As captive animals continue to benefit from living in a system of Wild Re-Creation through Bio-Activity and as they live and feed they ingest small particles of their environment. This is a safe process if the external parameters are maintained to the wild level and IF natural substrates are used. Arcadia Reptile EarthMix and Bio-Revitaliser are not only safe to use but pose no risk of impaction when used as part of Arcadia's theory of Wild Re-Creation.

Simply dig in or sprinkle over your live substrate once a month to ensure that the substrate has all of the essential nutrients that your plants and animals need.

This product can be used with all brands of Bio-Active substrate and can be used for some species as a sole substrate.

Arcadia Reptile EarthPro Bio-Revitaliser can also be used to feed house plants and in the garden also to ensure sustained and accelerated grow rates.

Available in an easy to re-seal foil pouch.

  • Potent bioactive system feed
  • UK collected Worm castings
  • Organic volcanic rock minerals
  • Boosts live plant growth
  • Easy to use foil pack

ProRep Bio Life Jungle Substrate 10 Litre

Bio-Life is a mixture of high quality ingredients which are blended to produce a substrate with the ideal properties for growing plants in a jungle setting.

It will provide adequate nutrients while retaining an open structure to promote healthy root growth and provide a habitat for woodlice, springtails, bacteria and fungi. Bio-active substrates are not designed to be used and replaced in the traditional manner, but rather be allowed to develop into a living ecosystem where waste materials are naturally broken down. They are spot cleaned if necessary and can be partially changed, but complete changes are to be discouraged as they destroy the developing populations of microorganisms.

This product is covered by our Safe Delivery Guarantee

  • Great for naturalistic enclosures
  • Contains nutrients and moisture
  • Great for plant growth and small insects
  • Should be allowed to naturally break down
  • Builds it's own eco-environment

Bioactive Substrates

Bioactive substrates are a great way to create your own bioactive set up. These soil based substrates are already packed with nutrients so plants and cleaner colonies like woodlice or springtails can be added straight into the enclosure. These are a great way to create a naturalistic enclosure.
