I'm getting some Dynastes tityus beetles in the mail on Tuesday or Wednesday!
They are newly emerged adults, and after they acclimate to their new home, hopefully I can get some babby beetle larvae.
Anyhoo, the mister and the missus are endemic to the Eastern United states, from New York down to Florida. They'll have a substrate of (unfertilized) peat, with leaf and wood mulch mixed in, and a bit o' sand.
I'd love to have this be planted, both to be aesthetically pleasing, and to give my beetles a pleasant environment. My question is this: What kind of plants would do well in this substrate?
Any and all suggestions welcome!
