Dusk Hygrolon is a durable material, fully safe for animals and plants, which does not decompose under the influence of moisture or light. It is ideal as a background material in the terrarium, as well as a base for epiphytic plants. Due to its very high hygroscopic abilities, it is perfect as a base for orchids, philodendrons and many other plants. The three-layer structure of hygrolon ensures excellent water distribution and air permeability. Thanks to that the plants growing on its surface are perfectly watered while minimizing the risk of root rot.
Hygrolon is a material that will work perfectly when planted with moss. Thanks to its porous structure and ability to collect and distribute water, it is an ideal substrate for all kinds of moss or ferns. We especially recommend the use of ready-made Dusk MossMix available in our store.
Installation of the Hygrolon is very simple and quick – just stick it to the surface with non-toxic glue or silicone. In case of installation on small elements such as roots or rocks, you can also use a transparent line.
