Very small prolific blue colored springtail. They do not jump, and they reproduce easily. These work best as a clean-up crew in an enclosure with larger inhabitants that won't eat them. This species had been misidentified by many, and it was being called Blue Podura. There are Blue Podura springtails available on the market, but the species we have has been identified as Proisotoma Minuta. This is an 8oz. culture on coco fiber with over hundreds of springtails. **NOTE** - These springtails are very small and due to their color are extremely hard to see in the coco coir, and you may think we sent you a cup of just coco coir. The easiest way to see them is to look on the side of the cup, and you will see them on the side in the coco coir. Using a magnifying glass makes it easy to see them. Also, if you are still struggling to see them, you can feed them a sprinkle of baking yeast, and the next day you will see the yeast is gone, which will let you know they are in there.
IF YOU HAVE STRUGGLED TO KEEP SPRINGTAIL CULTURES GOING, THIS IS AN EASY TO KEEP SPECIES THAT DOESN'T DIE OFF LIKE TEMPERATE OR TROPICAL. THEY CAN BE PROLIFIC.
