The Willow Oak leaf litter that Glass Box Tropicals consists of an assortment of sizes and shapes of leaves. They are harvested from areas that are free from pesticides, herbicides and fungicides. Most leaves will be brown and dried; although, occasional green spots may occur. Please note, leaves may also be broken or have missing pieces. Glass Box Tropicals’ Willow Oak leaf litter is a very economical option as it is not sorted. This means that it will contain other debris such as twigs, acorns, and acorn caps; as well as possibly a small amount of soil. This is a favorite of many customers for its use with isopods and other microfauna, as well as a great addition to a leaf litter mixture in a terrarium!

Leaf litter not only helps to provide a natural appearance, but the leaves also offer hiding spots for animals such as dart frogs. Additionally, as leaves decompose, microfauna such as springtails and isopods will use them as food. In the natural habitat of dart frogs and various gecko species, the leaf litter is often several inches thick with varying sizes, shapes and thicknesses of leaves. Glass Box Tropicals recommends having the leaf litter at least a few layers deep, with different types of leaves mixed together. It is also recommended to routinely add leaves as you see them decomposing.

Leaves are offered in 1 gallon quantities.
