Springtail culture on clay bearing substrate. Clay can maintain a healthy culture. No need to switch them to soil or charcoal after receiving. Benefits of clay over charcoal- During the shipping process charcoal moves around killing many springtails it also has a tendency to build up in gas if the box gets shaken, this can have damaging effects. Using clay instead of charcoal makes it much safer to ship by avoiding these common issues. It also makes feeding and seeding easier and faster. Just a quick tap of the side of the cup is all you need.
