    Orchid Bark

    I got a brick of the compressed coconut husks from Amazon, and I couldn't believe how much it expanded when broken up... I've been using that over cypress mulch and orchid bark from HD. J

    Barbados turtles

    Fantastic! Thanks for sharing... I'd love to see more pics of the torts and where/how they live. I love the thought of letting my torts (or some of them anyway) live outside year around someday in the future, when I move to a place without so much winter. Jamie
