Bulk kenaf

Does anyone know where I can obtain large quantities of Kenaf in JHB? I'm talking 50-100kg of the stuff type quantities.

I was led to believe that they no longer supplied the public. They sell it only by the ton.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.

It is my understanding that the factory that manufactures the Kenaf has shut down for refurbishment. I dont know when they are reopening but keep a look out

Well, that's a problem. What do people do for large collections?
Got around 30 snakes and a few hundred rats that need substrate.

Why not use saw dust in the mean time, works just as well.

rats can be kept on sawdust or Straw. you can also look at using Lucerne and not only does it work as a substrate but they also eat it. for snakes you have a number of options depending on the type of snake you keep.
