Sale price$2.95 USD

Size: Small - 15x15″

Keep your terrarium drainage channels open and flowing with this mesh screen. This easy-to-use protective barrier sits between your substrate and drainage material (also known as a false bottom), preventing the two from mixing and clogging up the whole system. Without a barrier, your plants’ roots can (and eventually will) grow into the drainage layer, defeating the purpose of one altogether. Save yourself the hassle of replanting with this simple solution!

We offer 3 sheet sizes so you can get just the right amount for your particular project.
