    Here's a link of non-toxic plants.

    Eco Earth's coco fiber alone is nutrient-poor. Coco fiber does not sustain any plant. For starters I suggest plants in pots.

    Try short hardy sansevieria (snake plant) planted in a 50:50 mix of good potting soil and sand. Prior to transplanting, rinse you newly purchased sansevieria well. Some sources may have used fertilizer. Keep it relatively dry. Maybe water it 2x per month.

    Keeping plants alive in a leo enclosure is tricky, because leos don't seem to be fans of bright lights. Concentrate on low-light plants.

    I wonder about all that daytime lighting in Biodude's leo bioactive video.

    Don't depend upon side-mounted heat mats to work at all, since heat rises. Heat really does not spread out sideways like Biodude demonstrates.

    I don't know about Arcadia's Arid Earth Mix.

    It has volcanic rock which helps with drainege in it and a lot of nutrients. there are quite a few Youtube videos on it, I am not surprised you don't know about it, it's a very new product.

    Let me guess, you got this idea from the young lady on you tube One think I would like to point out is her Leos are housed in wooden enclosures. Holds in heat and humidity helping prevent the health problems common with glass enclosures. If one day you can build an enclosure like this video I’m about to post, I would cheer you on because I know it would be safer. I was super excited when I saw the appropriate ventilation I don’t see this very often and so I had to share it. Bonus: Leo comes out to be nosy like I recently described in the past��. This is how my Leos were.

    This type of housing can help prevent impaction and substrate health related problems. People outside of the US are more fortunate by having access to appropriate enclosures.

    I can’t say no you can’t, simply that glass enclosures can dehydrate the gecko increasing the risk of impaction.

    Shes very informative, tho I cannot say I agree with Everything she says, her ways seem to be working well for her an its really cool she shares with us. Her videos helped get my daughters into geckos and well I find her pleasant to listen to (I'm a guy.. )

    I would think as long as you keep the humidity at acceptable levels it would be ok. Also it doesnt seem to be very expensive to build pvc foam board enclosures if your just building for one gecko so maybe thats an option?

    I already have a foam background but I would like loose substrate because I would like a bioactive tank and I want substrate Citrine can move.

    yes I am refering to the lady on you tube, there is one or two things I don't agree with ( like using a timer instead of a thermostat ) other than that I watch her videos quite a bit.
