Each culture of Springtails is shipped either on activated charcoal or clay. The box will have a clear label indicating which side should be upright during transit, and that they are perishable contents.

** PLEASE READ BEFORE CHOOSING CHARCOAL MEDIUM: When you receive your springtails on charcoal, please allow 1-2 weeks for the eggs to hatch and reform into a colony. Due to the unpreventable shuffling that the charcoal will go through in transit, adult springtails tend to perish by the time they reach their destination.

For this reason, we offer a clay option where the full colony will survive transit and be entirely visible.

Open the lid of the culture weekly to release Co2 buildup for both charcoal and clay cultures.**

The moment you receive your springtails, they will be ready to introduce into your bioactive setup. For tips on how to house and what to feed your springtails, we are currently working on a Blog/FAQ page that will provide this useful information. In the meantime, please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions at

IMPORTANT PLEASE READ: During the colder months (typically between November and February), product weight is calculated to include a shipping warmer with your isopods to keep them safe during transit.
