    Tracking poop/waste and coco-chip

    Any advice on maintaining a coco chip/cypress substate? Aspen is not a Favorite around the board but itís so easy to spot clean! I hear you can clean and reuse coco-chip but I share my environment with my Roxy. A big poop is one thing, but the majority of her waist is spotted by moisture and hard to spot to Bre.
    Definitely donít need any more funk in the apartment.
    Pointers?

    Aspen does nothing for the humidity needed by BPs- THAT's why it is not favored for them.

    for number 2’s you’ll definitely be able to spot them without issue - for number 1s spot the unrates and pick that up along with the surrounding area of substrate - also highly recommend a big soaking bowl - most of mine use them as litter boxes so it makes clean up even easier

    Yeah, I totally get it. Up to this point it hasnít been a problem doing a daily maintenance for keeping her humidity ideal. But now that sheís getting older, it would be nice to be able to step out of town for a couple days and not worry about humidity levels. The only vacation I took since Iíve gotten Roxy my sister, God bless her took care but made her enclosure sopping wet by the time I arrived home. But she also cleaned up the poop and change her water bowl so sheís forgiven
