ProRep Vermiculite Coarse 5 Litre

ProRep Vermiculite can be used as a substrate for spiders or as an incubation medium for reptile eggs. A 100% natural substrate made from exfoliated volcanic rock, it is inert and will not decay or go mouldy.

Directions:
Place the required amount of Vermiculite in a clean container. Add cold water a little at a time until the correct moisture content is reached.

For use with spiders, place a 1-2 inches (2.5-5cm) layer of moistened Vermiculite in the bottom of the tank. This substrate is not recommended for burrowing species as it does not form burrows easily. Spot-clean regularly and change completely every 4 weeks, or sooner if required.

For use as an incubation medium place a thick layer of moistened Vermiculite in the incubation box. A moisture ratio of 2:1 Vermiculite to water by weight is suitable for many species but some species have different requirements.

Carefully place the eggs in the Vermiculite with the top third of the egg exposed. When moving the eggs from the egg laying site to the Vermiculite take care to keep them the same way up. If possible ensure that the eggs do not touch each other during incubation.

Please note that as incubation of reptile eggs is a complex process that varies from species to species, it is essential that you research the details for each species before eggs are laid and have a suitable incubator ready.

Repashy Superfoods SuperHatch 168g

Incubation Media

Our SuperHatch is an advanced incubation medium that allows easy moisture monitoring (it changes color) and is indefinitely reusable. Great for Gecko Eggs.

INFORMATION: A This is a course grade ceramic product (Calcined Clay). It has excellent porosity and is the next generation in egg incubation media. It does not break apart over time, does not compact, or float. It?s color changes based on the amount of water it contains so you can easily monitor visually for changes in moisture level. It can be re-used indefinitely by cooking or boiling to sterilize. An inert, neutral, 100% natural mineral blend, this product lasts year after year without breaking down. Each particle contains thousands of internal and external pore spaces.

INGREDIENTS: 100% Arcillite.

USAGE: Can be added to feed (as solution, or dry), water, syringe fed, or dropped into mouth. Use as prescribed by your Veterinarian. For oral use only. Solution is not injectable. Once mixed, solution should be discarded after 3 months.

Tips: 1 mL = 1 cc = 20 drops.

DIRECTIONS: Place SuperHatch in a sieve, strainer, or in a porous bag. Soak in water for a few minutes, remove and let drip dry. Add SuperHatch to your incubation container, filling it approx. 1/2 full. Add eggs, and you are good to go! Saturating the SuperHatch and letting it drip dry is a suitable mixture for most species. Some species require less moisture in the container, and this can be easily accomplished by taking the saturated SuperHatch and mixing back in a % of dry SuperHatch. You can also mix SuperHatch with Water on a weight/weight, or volume/volume ratio to get the required moisture level. SuperHatch has extreme porosity combined with very fine internal structure size. This allows SuperHatch to absorb and hold large amounts of water, with a very slow rate of evaporation, which helps control the quick release of water which causes surface moisture and condensation. Always use the largest feasible incubation container possible. A minimum recommended size is a 16 oz container for a pair of gecko eggs, and a shoebox size container for 10-20 eggs. The more volume in the container, the last drastic environmental changes can effect the conditions inside the container.

Incubation Substrates

When incubating eggs we generally recommend vermiculite or pearlite (hatchrite) as they retain a lot of moisture and are great for increasing humidity without soaking the eggs. If you are unsure on how to incubate your eggs or need advice on which unit you need or how to set it up please call use on 01604753823 and we can talk you through it.

Vermiculite can be used as a substrate for spiders or as an incubation medium for reptile eggs. A 100% natural substrate made from exfoliated volcanic rock, it is inert and will not decay or go mouldy.

HatchRite is a specially formulated breeding substrate for reptile eggs which already has the right substrate humidity. It is ready to use and no water has to be added.
