LC Ants HT GroPods™ Gen IV for Leaf Cutter Ants

Introducing the LC Ants HydroThermo Series GroPods™, the world's first automatic, all-in-one heated and humidified housing solution, designed specifically for leaf cutter ants!

Our brand new, 4th generation GroPods have been completely re-imagined. The industry's first commercially available heated & humidified system is here! With a staggering 180% larger capacity than our 3rd Generation GroPods, and a whopping 275% larger capacity than alternate imitation products! This means you are able to house an extremely large fungus garden without the need to add on extra modules in a small space of time. The 4th Generation GroPods have been the design and testing phase for over a year, this means that you will receive a tried & tested product which is guaranteed to be the best housing option ever!

The HT insert holds a body of water which is heated, resulting in evaporation of the warm humid air which passes through fine slots in the insert to enter the GroPod. This forms convection currents of heat inside the GroPod, simultaneously heating and humidifying.

This is the ULTIMATE housing solution for Leaf Cutter Ants, combining a highly practical design, with a beautiful view of your ants.
