you can use just peat moss, or peat moss with lime. lime keeps out contams.

Mix moss with water until moist, put in a baking tray, cover with foil ( tighty), bake at 200 for one hr, let cool, aply and spray with water and h202 to moist.

Try coir (coconut fiber).  Just do a search for gro-brick with a search engine and it's available through many online stores. :smile:

Not only peat moss. There's a good substitute you can use with peat moss, get a pingeon food bag as a mix of various rocks, it has crushed oister shells, silica and other porous rocks. You can find it at allmost any pet store, i just looked at it and felt "right" about using it.... and i was right ;)) .

Peace,

If I remember correctly, Fanaticus suggested using Perlite as the bottom layer of a casing; he said it was better than verm.
