This is an ideal all round base substrate for most invertebrates
and by far the popular substrate with Tarantula keepers. Its hold water well
(up to 600%), allows easy burrowing and is pest free. As it holds water well
you dampen the substrate depending on how high you want the humidity. This substrate
is also ideal for mixing with other substrates such as vermiculite and sand.
Look good when mixed with bark chips substrates to create more naturalistic
set ups or blends for specific species.
