Zoo Med's Tropical Bioactive Kit provides an ideal substrate base to start a perfect bioactive setup for your terrarium. The Bioactive Kit includes ReptiSoil, Terrarium Moss and Catappa Leaves that is used to create a foundation for a miniature ecosystem used to house live plants, invertebrates and microorganisms.
What is "Bioactive?"
The term "bioactive" is used to describe a miniature ecosystem created in a terrarium or vivarium. In a functional bioactive habitat, small invertebrates (aka: Clean-up Crew) break down waste from your pet to make nutrients available for live plants to consume. This incredible living network forms a balance that can reduce the maintenance of your habitat while enhancing its look.
A naturalistic bioactive terrarium set up is aesthetically pleasing and can be enjoyed year-round.
The combination of soil, moss and leaves allows for the live plant growth, increased humidity and helps promote natural reptile behaviors.
A bioactive ecosystem with a clean-up-crew and live plants helps reduces the need for terrarium cleaning and maintenance.
