Bioactive Herps Beech Leaves
Leaf Litter plays many important roles within a Bioactive enclosure, from covering substrates to reduce moisture loss, and thus keep humidity down, to acting as a food source for custodians and microbes within the soil (Who wants to eat faeces all day?).
Beech leaves break down relatively slowly compared to other species, and so are the perfect addition to any environment.
Whilst Bioactive Herps always advocate the use of leaf litter from outdoors, where beneficial microbes and custodians are already living, it is important to remember that in areas of high pollution, pesticides or where the risk/fear of disease transmission is high, using sterilised leaves like these are much more preferable.
These can also be used by Non-Bio setups, as a foraging medium, for animals like African Pygmy Hedgehogs, or as part of a more natural looking substrate, that is easy to change.
Available in 5L and 10L bags. Please note, the bags are 10L, the amount of leaves you receive are enough to fill a 10L bag without squashing or damaging the leaves.
