I was reading Ken The Bug Guy's millipede care book and was looking at the section on food substrates. I had thought that millipedes just needed fruits and veggies to eat before getting the book and didn't realize that they also ate the substrate. I don't know what to use exactly because it seems like some of these things would be hard to get or get started. For instance, the sawdust needs fungus to grow on it, will this happen naturally? I didn't know which substrates are good and common at pet stores, since I haven't seen (I'm going to check this afternoon) rotting wood or leaves for sale at my LPS. I was planning on using cococut fiber as a base substrate which seemed easy enough to get. This is the only obstacle I have to straighten out before I get my African Giant
and wanted to work it out soon!
