Hi,
Does any one know if this substrate is a good choice for a T.blondi?? I know allot of people use coco-husk or soil etc but I prefer the look of the moss! and it holds the humidity really well!
Thanks guys and have a Happy new year!! Very Happy

I know someone who put a layer of that on top of cocofiber for a large T (Acanthoscurria chacoana). It worked pretty well, especially since the T moved it around so it would draw moisture out of the water dish and into its burrow.

So I'd think it would be fine as a layer on top, but I'd recommend keeping a thick layer of cocofiber underneath.

Il add a few inchs of cocofiber an soil and have the moss on top,the moss really helps with the high humidity that the T.blondi needs,thats why i was so keen to use it!
Thanks
