Yeah, I have a sphagnum filled box in every snake cage. Resolves all shedding/eyecap issues. They grow quickly, given lots of food. My 2013 all black male now weighs in at 2.25 lbs. he is between 4 and 5 feet in length. I feed at least 2X per week, multiple items. Sometimes breeders just maintenance feed. And because it take a couple months or so to get the permit, lots of baby indigos seem under-sized when you finally get them. Just my opinion. As you likely already know, they do better on multiple small food items. My 2013 male cannot take a small rat, but I have a corn snake about half as big that easily swallows small rats. Once they reach sexual maturity, I slow down the food train, but yearlings need lots of food. My opinion only. Others choose to grow them slowly.
