After experimenting with countless substrates for our many species of reptiles, we were left unhappy and wanting something new. Our criteria were simple. We wanted a product that could hold humidity, while being easy to clean, dust free, and most importantly, safe for our animals. Eventually we stumbled across a product that orchid propagators had been using that looked promising: coconut. To make a long (really long) story short, we basically received a Doctorate of Coconut after spending weeks studying different varieties, locales, and consistencies of coconut available.
Months of negotiation and testing took place, and now we’re finally able to make Reptichip coconut substrate available in the United States!
