Re: Bioactive thoughts

It's easiest/best to buy some sort of topsoil or potting soil that doesn't have fertilizers added. Then add leaf litter or whatever you want to it to get it to hold the amount of moisture you desire and introduce microorganisms. It's a good idea to mix in some dirt from outside too.

I added a fair amount of sand in the mix for my indigo, but with a tree boa, you'll probably want a soil that holds more moisture than what I needed.
