About Our Leaf Litter

Leaf litter provides an integral part of your bioactive habitat.  It includes cover for isopods to move freely in your terrarium to keep them from all being eaten by the principal inhabitants.  The leaves are also a food source for the cleaning crew. In a naturalistic, bio-active terrarium, leaf litter breaks down and adds nutrients to the substrate and provides food for springtails and isopods.

Leaf litter comes in two different sizes, 4 and 16-cup bags.  Please see our video on how we fill our bags and ensure each pack contains the same amount of leaf litter.
