Feeding Tea Leaves to Isopods


Recommended Posts

Anyone feed used tea leaves to their isopods?

I have non-caffeinated leaves (like mint tea, hibiscus tea, etc.) and caffeinated leaves (like green and black teas) too.  

Will the used tea leaves be a beneficial food for isopods?  Will is somehow be harmful?

What are your experience and thoughts?

I saw something today from an isopod breeder on Instagram that showed the use of a dried produce medley intended for pet reptiles in an enclosure. Theoretically, many herbal teas would work just as well.

Bump away!  I'm always open to people "digging up" my old threads.  More so, if they are still relevant or useful. 

But yes, I used both caffeinated leaves (black tea) and non-caffeinated leaves (green tea, mint tea, hibiscus tea, etc.).  Both were eaten, no ill effects noticed.

Hope that helps!
