Put a layer of perlite at the bottom of your terrarium and fruit it as a cake or find some coco coir at the pet store and case with that. There are many ways to make a casing. Look in the FAQ.

You can use potting soil. Also just peat if that is all you can get. Be sure to add a some limestone flour to raw peat. Search the faqs here for recipes.

Like calicyo and ekstaza said search the tek, everything you need to know is in there. I know, I know, that means you'll have to do a little work but it's well worth the time. :grin:

I had the same trouble finding verm in my area... look up gardening in your yellow pages and call around to a few places, someone is bound to have some.

I used verm. I found a gardening store that had a whole shelf full of verm, but before I went there I went to a Lowes, 2 Wal-Marts, and a K-Mart and none of them had any.
