Willow oak, Quercus phellos, comes from the common Oak tree. These trees are commonly found alongside streams and waterways. When the fall season comes around the leaves turn a golden brown color before falling to the floor. The shape and the color of these leaves create a very naturalistic feel within a terrarium.
These are an essential organic ground litter when it comes to bio-active terrariums. Willow Oak can be used as a source of nutrition for isopods as well as additional hiding security. Even a small layer of leaf litter significantly increase the surface area and ability for ants to explore
Size of individual leaves average approx. 2-3'' in length.
