Can anyone recommend a blog or article that is good for a newbie starting FF cultures? I have my terrarium and and going for about 3 months and I think it's time that I seed it and start cultures so I can add some frogs.

It's really rather simple. The recipe I used is:

Dry:
6 parts potato flakes
1 part powdered sugar
1 part brewers yeast

Wet:
white vinegar
hot water
large drop of honey (optional)
small spoonful of banana baby food (optional)

I mix the dry ingredients and store them in a bag. When I make the cultures, I put 1/2 cup dry ingredients, 1/2 cup of hot (boiling) water, 1/4 vinegar and the specified amount of optional stuff into the container and mix.

If you search the food forum you can find lots of info about culturing FFs as well as other feeders.
