    Group an assortment of air plants (Tillandsia sp.) for the easiest care. They naturally grow on branches and rocks, so no soil is needed. There are lots to choose from in silvers, greens, pinks, and reds.

    A proprietary blend of nutrient rich substrate for potting terrarium plants, ideal for growing-on or in preparation for planting into tropical naturalistic / bio active / live planted terrariums / vivariums / paludariums housing Dart Frogs, Day Geckos, Chameleons, Crested Geckos etc. etc.
    Pollywog’s Terrarium Potting Soil is formulated to allow terrarium plants to flourish and your terrarium inhabitants to live happy healthy lives in a naturalistic environment. Our potting blend is made up of the following ingredients:

  • Soil
    I create my terrarium soil from scratch. One should choose a soil suited to the plants inside. If you’re creating a succulent terrarium, buy a succulent and cacti terrarium mix. Otherwise, use a regular potting mix. I mix a half-cup of activated charcoal into the soil mix. The charcoal will keep the soil fresh. In addition, being porous, the charcoal adds some needed lightness and drainage to the soil. I add layers of sand or other materials to add visual interest to the bottom of the terrarium, making certain these materials are inert and will not leach any harmful chemicals into the soil.

Potting soil Optional: spaghnum moss;

Another name for sphagnum moss is bog moss. When preparing the terrarium soil, a layer of sphagnum moss covers the activated charcoal layer. The purpose of the sphagnum moss is to separate the potting soil from the activated charcoal and gravel, preventing the potting soil from falling into the gravel or rocks, resulting in muddy soil and a potential for mold developing.
