HabiStat Sedge Peat Substrate consist of pure peat and is therefore 100% natural. Non toxic and non abrasive, this substrate is ideal for invertebrates, amphibians and burrowing species from humid environments. Our range of HabiStat substrates are all now packed in 100% recyclable and biodegradable paper bags. Available in 10 Litre bags and Bulk. Directions for Use: Spread substrate evenly across vivarium base ensuring a depth of 1-2" (2.5-5cm). Do not overfill if using underfloor heating. Spot clean as required and replace regularly.
I like to mix my own substrates based on which species it will be for. I find sedge peat to be a great addition to coco coir as a base substrate as it assists in stubility if the substrate is to be used for burrowing etc. It’s affordable and makes a good ingredient for mixing substrates for humid and arid enclosures alike. Supports plant life well, too. Very versatile!
Great product. Really good quality however inside paper bag is a flimsy plastic bag that tears very easily. Think maybe a better design for packaging is needed
Bought this to provide a bit of oomph to my beardie viv. Great value for 10l and excellent quality. Bought this over the other brand as it came in paper packaging but once opened, the soil was wrapped in a plastic bag! All said and done, used this as part of my base layer for the CUC and it’s great to work with and allows my beardie to dig and burrow.
