Quantity Available: 74286

Josh’s Frogs ABG Mix is the perfect blend for growing tropical plants. Our mix is inspired by the original ABG Mix developed by the Atlanta Botanical Garden. Each bag is a precise mixture of charcoal, milled sphagnum moss, fir bark, Josh’s Frogs False Bottom, and peat. The mixture creates the perfect balance between retaining moisture and proper drainage, it can last for several years if used properly! Wet the substrate before using it for cleaner moving, the moisture helps cut down on dust.

 

This substrate mix is for most applications when growing tropical plants, in a dart frog vivarium, paludariums, live plant terrarium, growing tropical houseplants, etc.

Great Substrate, a little bit pricey Review by Mike
Quality
It's amazing substrate but it is quite of bit of money for what you get, However, it works well with my dart frogs and springtails and keep it looking relatively clean. (Posted on 12/11/2017)
So much easier Review by Kristi
Quality
I have previously made my own ABG, but when I broke down the cost of purchasing the bulk ingredients, the time, hassle, and mess- just was not worth it for my on my small scale. This is an excellent mix. My only complaint is that it is not mixed in the bag, so if you aren't using the whole bag, it is kind of a pain to dump it out, mix it, then either put it back in the bag or another container. That is the only reason I deducted a star. (Posted on 11/24/2017)
Great Mix Review by Alex
Quality
This is absolutely a great mix, my plants and isopods love it so far! It allows for great drainage as well. I had previously bought a ABG mix from a different source and I wasn't all that please with it, then I found Josh's Frogs mixture and I'm now very happy! Josh's Frogs never lets me down. Would recommend! (Posted on 11/10/2017)

Awesome product Review by Michael
Quality
This ABG mix is great for everything dealing with plants and vivs. Used ecoearth in one tank previously and you can really tell the difference and I will be using this from now on. Plants love it and the micro fauna love it throw down a little sphagnum moss and you're done. Keeps the humidity up while not turning into mud. (Posted on 7/2/2017)
