The BioDudes handcrafted Terra Aranea bioactive substrate for Tarantulas, Scorpions, Spiders, Vinegaroons and other invertebrates. Terra Aranea is a one-of-a-kind substrate that was thoroughly tested for over a year prior to it's release in 2019. Terra Aranea substrate is specifically designed for all biomes that can get very dry and arid or in a high humidity biome. This substrate is designed to hold the perfect amount of water while allowing for evaporation, preventing anaerobic bacteria growth, which is a common fight when dealing with inverts and terrariums. When used in conjunction with the Bio Shot, it will not only help outcompete negative bacterias and mold, it encourages the full self-cleaning, self-maintaining bioactive environment, while ensuring your invert gets the exact husbandry they need, without the worry of harmful molds and bacterias.  Terra Aranea also retains all burrows and hides. I have found this substrate brings out many of the instinctual niches that many different invertebrates do in their daily life. Not only does it hold a burrow, it also holds a complete tunnel when the moisture content is held at 25%-75%. Terra Aranea provides excellent organic nutrition for your vivarium by creating necessary air pockets for root development and plant health. These air pockets are also necessary for the springtails and isopods to create a sustainable population in the vivarium. 

How to do it right:  For each 6 qt bag of BioDude substrate we highly recommend using one 6qt dosage of BioShot to charge your soil with needed aerobic bacteria, mycorrhizal fungi, and archaea to promote the efficient conversion of organic waste to nutrients easily absorbed by plant roots.

There is no drainage layer needed for the Terra Aranea.

Note: Each 6 qt bag of Terra Aranea weighs 3.25 lbs.
