That's the reason people mix it with vermiculite and, in my case, the water saver crystals (aka dry Water Bites)Originally posted by Solar Dart
How do you keep the peat moss moist?
Not quite true. If you ask an unlimited amount of Tarantula owners (which I've effectively seen since this topic comes up frequently) and tallied up all the differences you would find the largest group uses some sort of mix of peat and verm. Followed closely by the straight peat or straight potting soil parties. Followed by the Jungle Bedding/Bedabeast party. Then you get into the straight verm. After this you will find the bare bones astroturf crowd. And almost last are those minimalists who don't use anything at all except some paper towels that they can change easily. Last are the weirdos who have them on some sort of decorative sand or stone.Originally posted by Kenny
