    I used eco earth for a few years. I like the jungle mix because the wood debris in it seems to leave gaps and water spreads out more evenly. I've never once found mold in it either, which is a plus as I do have quite a few moisture lovers now. I'm sold on false bottoms for those now, though. Its just the best way, and safest as far as pests go.

    Its basically an inch or two of gravel in the bottom of the enclosure. You run a piece of pvc straight into the gravel and then fill in with substrate. When you need humidity you add water down the pipe, it spreads along the bottom evenly so theres a moist lower area that the hide/tunnel leads to. That way you're not making a large moist area of substrate on the surface for them, which is what makes mold, and attracts pests.
