Hello! I am a new redfoot owner. I have had my little guy for about 4 months now. He is currently about a year old. As of now he is in a 3 by 2 foot enclosure but we are upgrading right now and I need help. I want him to be as comfortable as possible and I want him to feel as if he was in the wild. Right now he has organic top soil mixed with eco earth and then it is covered up by cypress mulch and timothy hay (i have heard from the forum that it is good for them) He currently is living indoors until he gets larger but he has an outdoor enclosure that he goes in for about 1 hour 5 days a week with me watching him. Does anyone have any tips on making an enclosure naturalistic or any plants to put in? Also would you recommend putting a clean up crew of isopods and springtails in?

My outdoor enclosure is just 4 - 10ft boards attached together. It's planted with lyropi, hibiscus, hosta, and various tortoise seed mixes. Screenshot_20200729-114953~2.png
