Hobby Vermiculite Ø0-4 mm: Capacity 4 L. Substrate for incubation of reptile eggs. Fine grain size of 0 – 4 mm with greater water potential, which is closer to the eggs. Recommended for small and soft-shelled eggs.
Hobby vermiculite Ø3-6 mm: Capacity 4 L. Substrate for incubation of reptile eggs. Coarse grain size of 3 – 6 mm with improved gas exchange due to more air-filled pores. Recommended for large and hard-shelled eggs.
Substrate moisture significantly affects the development of reptile eggs. Especially soft-shelled eggs absorb large amounts of moisture during incubation. Substrate moisture can be controlled by water addition and grain size. Fine-grained vermiculite has a greater water potential and lies more closely to the eggs. It is recommended for small and soft-shelled eggs. Coarser vermiculite improves gas exchange by having more air-filled pores. It is recommended for large and hard-shelled eggs. Replace evaporated water regularly. Incubate only enough eggs per container equal to half the weight of the water. Do not let relative humidity fall below 70% for hard-shelled eggs or 90% for soft-shelled eggs.
