That's mighty admirable of you! I'm still super paranoid about screwing anything up even thought my pedes all seem to be eating well.

I'm thinking they need deeper substrate. They've only got about 4 inches right now, and I suspect going deeper might encourage breeding. I'll probably pick up a brick of coir and prepare some more leaves.

Do you guys think freezing leaves for a day or two will sterilize them well enough? I'm kind of worried that boiling them might leech out some of the nutrients.
