ProRep Crestie Life is part of the species specific "life" series of substrates and has been designed to meet the needs of arboreal species that require high humidity.
The mix of ingredients provides an open structured substrate that will hold moisture, releasing it slowly in the atmosphere to maintain a high humidity. Its open structure ensures that air is able to penetrate deep into the substrate layer, preventing stagnation and unpleasant smells and the slightly acidic PH helps to inhibit bacterial growth.
Crestie Life can be used as an active medium for growing live plants that need a neutral or acidic soil. It is not suitable for plants than need alkaline soil, or in enclosures that have aquatic area that may cause the substrate to become waterlogged. Because of its moisture retaining qualities and open structure Crestie Life is also suitable as an egg laying medium and eggs laid in it will not dehydrate before they can be collected.
