View Full Version : Quick substrate Q

12-10-2011, 01:46 PM
Just another noob question, I was wondering about Live Sphagnum Moss substate I chose it over Vermiculite as wanted a more natural look but it's just in a sealed pack with no instructions and I only have experience with the Coco-fibre/Coir blocks, I know that it's meant to be good for humidity and it seems already moist but does it need drying out before use or should I just use it as it is or would it be wise to pour hot water over it to clean it, do I mix it up with the Coir or lay it on top, how do most of you use it?
Any advice is appreciated

it depends on what type of T that you have. If you have one that needs high humidity then moisten it and mix it in the substrate. If you have more of a desert/scrub dweller then dry it out and just arrange it on top of the substrate/hide/decor as you wish.
