The 2 oz culture contains 30 - 100+ Springtails and the 8 oz culture has 100 - 500+ Springtails - both are mixed springtail instar sizes with eggs from one of our many aged mature springtail colonies.

A low count is stated as we do not physically count the springtails each time (no one can). The cultures sold are full of springtails though - see our feedback.

For use as feeders or transferring to a individual terrarium or vivarium tank as a cleaning crew. Opened cultures can have a smell some may find offensive from their decomposing food.

Guaranteed live arrival or 100% money back - Box shipped with packing material for insulated safe delivery in any weather year-round (including below freezing temperatures) No cold or heat pack is needed (and are not included).

Hardy Tropical White Springtail variety (Collembola sp.).

All cultures include our care sheet guide and a 3.75" plain wooden spoon for your convenience. The spoon will help in transferring the springtails for use, and can be buried in the substrate where it will biodegrade becoming a food source for the springtails.

Springtails are dual purpose as a clean-up crew for other pets as they eat decomposing organic matter, mold, fungus, etc - and a feeder to pets that need small prey (length 0.06"-0.125" (1.5mm-3mm)).

As a cleaning crew they are also great for Bioactive life in Terrarium, Vivarium, Greenhouse setups.

Our cultures are raised and shipped in 100% organic sphagnum peat moss since 2014, it makes them much more prolific.

2 oz culture cup measures 1.16" (29.4mm) tall, 1.77" (44.9mm) smallest diameter, and 2.43" (61.7mm) widest diameter. 8 oz culture cup measures 1.69" (4.28cm) tall, 3.82" (9.71cm) smallest diameter, and 4.60" (11.68cm) widest diameter.

See our other items for other sizes, Springtail food, and more products available.

Springtails survive worst case scenario's from shipping with our packing methods, so we ship Monday through Saturday when ordered. However, shipping is only within the Contiguous US (48 states).

Orders are typically shipped within 24 hours except Sunday and USPS Holidays. We combine shipping automatically when possible.
