Our springtails come in a 1oz (4cm x 3cm) plastic container with a lid. As they are small and quick, we cannot guarantee a specific number of springtails in each container, but the quantity is sufficient for one medium sized terrarium such as the one linked here.
Keep in mind that springtails reproduce rapidly, so starting with a smaller population can help maintain a balanced ecosystem. As the population grows, the springtails will self-regulate based on available resources and will not overpopulate even in smaller containers.
If you order a larger amount of springtails we may use different packaging including zip bags or larger containers.
A single container usually includes various stages of insect growth, and these creatures have a lifespan of approximately one year. Initially, only the mature, larger and white springtails are easily visible, while the smaller ones may be harder to spot.
We offer 24-hour shipping for springtails. Please open the parcel immediately upon receipt. Avoid exposing them to extreme temperatures, such as heat or cold, and direct sunlight.
Move the medium with springtails to your terrarium, you can mix it with the soil or place on the top of the potting mix/moss. Make sure the soil is moist and ready for springtails.
