What do you guys think is the best & cheapest substrate for Eastern box turtles? Mines a year old by the way! :D

Cypress mulch is probably the cheapest. You can get a big bag at Home Depot for $3

Cypress mulch as noted is chesp, but if you live anywhere near a wooded area, a good bag of (free) leaf litter works well too. Our back yard is mixed deciduous trees, sprinkled with pine. Tons of leaf litter, ferns, etc. of course, you get more bugs too.
