    Growing grass

    Check out my thread on growing grass Indoors and the mixes I used I agree though. Way easier to grow it outside and seed with winter grass and summer grasses. I'm not growing grass Indoors this year since I planted a bunch of grass outside.

    I've done it with a regular home one for Hugo's winter box. Usually keeps humidity around 60 instead of the teens. But I have to fill it every day with distilled water. Might invest in a bigger tank this year though

    I have spread a bunch of mulch in my sulcata outdoor enclosure for ramps, trees and to grow grass (keeps the birds from eating the seed) No problems yet. Not purchased from the big box store. (Those can have herbicides, dyes and other stuff)

    New Garden For My Russian

    I think a Russian seed mix would be great! I'm sure you have enough time until your first frost but you could still build a simple cold frame over it to extend the season. Love it when ppl grow stuff!
