Hi,

I might be paranoid...
So I made a little mistake.

One and a half weeks a ago I used my watering can to water my bonsai, and put in some liquid fertilizer.
Now, in the meantime I have rinsed and flushed the watering can out, but today accidentally used it for watering my terrarium for my P. Cavimanus.

There is a risk of there being a small minute bit of fertilizer in the can, however minute, which I can't imagine since I put in clean water, but is there realistic danger for my P. Cavimanus? Or am I being paranoid?


I'm paranoid aren't I?


I knew it......

I think its not a huge problem since in the wild scorpions do come in contact with similar elements found in organic matter. I think a person would be more likelier to harm a scorpion just with over watering rather than the minuscule trace elements or minerals in water. As long as your soil itself is not highly fertilized potting soil, you're all good.

No worries;) I don't overwater, I have plenty of experience with scorpions.

Thank you for your reassurance man!
Your answer is logical, Nature's soil isn't sterile either of course. I am just a bit overprotective when it comes to my animals:) lol

I don't use fertilized soil of course, I use coco peat.
My Yoda has made an awesome burrowing system in it:) And I didn't look forward to destroying it.
I want her to be happy!

Thanks again!

Most non-desert type scorpions can tolerate a slight increase in nitrogen/ammonia levels on the soil, found mostly in fertilizers. Besides, it's not an insecticide right? so guess there's no need to worry Very Happy
