Banana stems are very unique, almost tree-like botanicals. We really like these and so do our isopods and aquatic creatures! They can be quite long, thick or thin, which adds an additional layer of contrast to your habitat.
If you use these in your aquarium, we recommend boiling them for about 45 minutes and then rinse them in cold water. This will help them sink.
For your isopod habitats you can put them in directly. If you do not have springtails, we recommend baking them at 160 degrees F to kill any mold spores.
