I've been using eco earth and moss as substrate for my BRB and had seen recommendations for cypress mulch everywhere. Had read its mold resistant, holds humidity well, etc Decided to get a bag from the pet shop. After getting it I've been looking at how to sterilize it even tho its probably OK to just use out of the bag. During my search I found conflicting answers on sterilizing it and that it molds, holds spores of some sort that are deadly to snakes, dries out easily, etc.. basically everything opposite of all of the care sheets for BRBs using cypress mulch. Q1: what is the best way to sterilize the mulch? Q2: is cypress mulch mold/mildew resistant? Q3: is cypress mulch really safe to use? Plan on using eco earth with the mulch on top, with moss in select areas.
