    Lookin’ to get a millipede. I’d like leaf litter. My local Exotics shop sells a little bag with barely anything in it for $20 which seems a bit overpriced so I’m wondering if I could take some from outside. I have a maple tree, a choke cherry tree, an apple tree, and some other tall tree, not sure what those are, but they’re still alive, so it doesn’t take a green thumb to keep them. No pesticides or other chemicals, could I pick some leaves to dry out for my tank? Does baking them dry them out?
