1. Soil amendment for horticultural mixes / vivarium substrates. Promotes drainage and aids in odor control.
2. Springtail culture medium. Set up instructions below:
Recommended processing and setup:
Evenly rinse charcoal over a sink, gently shaking and turning the charcoal so that all dust is removed from all pieces. This is easily done in a strainer.
Douse with RO water and let drain.
Transfer charcoal to a large bin / tub if making a master culture, or a smaller container if making a feeder culture or culture to sell.
Transfer springtails from an old culture using the method of your choice.
Fill your container 1/3 with RO water. Water may already be present if you used another master culture to seed current culture.
Sprinkle Spring-Load Springtail food on top of culture, wait 3-5 days and repeat.
