Much smaller than Folsomia candida. Noticeably blue under magnification. Great for paludariums and other setups with water features.
Starter cultures include enough springtails to seed one enclosure, or start your own master culture. Blue Podura starter cultures are cultured and shipped on clay.
Springtails are amazing little critters that help solve a lot of problems in bioactive setups and terrariums. In a bioactive setup, the springtails work with the isopods to create the perfect clean up crew – the isopods break down larger waste created by the primary inhabitants, while the springtails eat the mold and fungus that thrives in humid setups. Fungus gnats and most mites that end up in terrariums also feed on mold and fungus, so a healthy springtail population can eventually outcompete the gnats and mites for food and control the populations.
