    Ooh. I have a bit of Sphagnum growing in another terrarium, but I don't want to chop it all down. Would a 25:75 mix of moss : peat work?

    A peat and sphagnum mix will be very poorly aerated. I am using a 50/50 mix of sphagnum and APS.

    http://www.turface.com/turface-produ...rs/turface-mvp

    get turface MVP or turface "All sport" same stuff at generic pricing
    Do not get the dyed versions.... just the plain jane turface

    I got two 50lb bags a couple weeks ago for $11USD a bag :-)

    Turface is APS.... just packaged for a different application

    50lb bag with turface name = 11 bucks
    10lb bag with APS name = 25 bucks

    all my advice is in the sticky....soil mixes, trichoderma application etc etc etc
    Not much I can add....

    They use aquatic plant soil on baseball diamonds? ...Wow.

    What is aquatic plant soil composed of, anyway?

    Heat Treated Montmorillonite Clay

    wiki:
    Montmorillonite can be calcined to produce arcillite, a porous, calcined clay sold as a soil conditioner for playing fields and other soil products such as for use as bonsai soil as an alternative to akadama.[citation needed]
