Tropical Turf has a loose structure of many natural fibres and it can store a large amount of water! With these properties it can be used perfectly for side and backwalls of terraiums, as ground substrates or even for the surface of constructions or waterfalls. Tropical Turf is even a good alternative for Xaxim (tree fern panels), since Xaxim is increasingkly difficult to source. Tropical Turf is a purely natural product and with enough water and the right lighting a lot of plants, like bromeliads, mosses, ferns and other bog plants can be grown on it. Please note that Tropical Turf has a relatiively low pH (3,5), which means it is not suitable for all plant species. It is important to choose only those plants which can tolerate acidic conditions.
