 1 QUESTION

I got my first p. imperator two weeks ago and I have the same substrate the petstore used for him. Geicoˇ¦s been doing fine but I want to swich to something else since he canˇ¦t burrow and it doesnˇ¦t hold moisture very well. I saw this one brand called EcoEarth it was in a compressed block and it says it expands when it gets wet or something like that. Is EcoEarth all right to use?

you should get peat moss. its a potting soil but its really good for them to burrow in and its alot like most of those expanding bricks but its not a brick its just in a bag it would be in the garden section. oh and its cheaper

also, bed a beast tends to get muddy if it is even slightly too wet and then turns into a brick. for imps i generally use about a 75/25 of peat and organic fertilizer. make sure the peat is damp when you put it in (but not wet, it shouldn’t drip when lightly squeezed) because peat is extremely dusty when dry.
