Amazonian peoples use charcoal as a key ingredient of their terra preta soils, and today it is a staple component in nearly every substrate mix used in the aroid, terrarium and vivarium hobbies.
In addition to its use as a substrate, it is also an excellent material for culturing live foods inside the vivarium, particularly springtails (Collembola) – filling the trough with charcoal supports an ongoing food source for freshly morphed froglets. Because it weighs half as much as calcined clay, it also makes an excellent drainage material that will help reduce the overall weight of your vivarium display.
Coarse Grade is measured at: 10-15mm
