I've been looking for alternatives to the coco chips for substrates. Something that would be a little more plant friendly. I've found "organic" soil no fertilizers and its cheaper than the stuff that has additives.

I can imagine that if I'm not careful it could become a mess in a falsebottom tank, but other than that is there any reason it wouldn't be safe for the frogs?

Tad,
I don't see why organic soil wouldn't work with the exception that "soil" typically doesn't drain as well. So stagnation and mold could potentially develop. I used peat moss for everything, the background, and planting media and have had great results. I replanted our deck plants this summer and drainage with the soil was an issue so I wound up replanting them again. Just my opinion and experience.

I was thinking about mixing it with cocochips or "repti-bark" Or possibly as a thin lair on top of chips/bark.
