16oz starter culture of temperate springtails (Collembola sp.) in horticultural charcoal. 


Springtails are an essential component of any bioactive setup. Introducing them into a vivarium as clean-up crew is as simple as dumping the contents of the container into the substrate. Or, simply keep the container in a room-temperature area, sprinkle some micromash SPRINGTAIL diet on the surface of the charcoal, and allow the springtail population to flourish. Keep about 1/2-1” of water in the bottom of the container at all times.

Great colony

After picking up more moisture dependent tarantulas at NARBC, I stopped by the Marshall booth to grab a springtail colony. Couldn't really see much in the container, but trusted it. I started feeding the colony a sprinkling of fish food. It's now been 3 weeks, and the jar is full of adults and the walls look dusty due to the massive amount of babies. I've now seeded 8 juvenile enclosures and still have countless springtails left. So many I'm not exactly sure what to do with them all. Good price and great colony.

Spring Tail Culture

Fantastic 👌. I've purchased springtails from Josh’s Frogs before and were disappointed to see that the culture was dead. The spring tails from Marshall's Arachnids came alive and growing!
