sphagnum moss as substrate

Took me a while to realize that sphagnum moss has made a great substrate for one of my kings. I use the moss as an incubation medium, and when the bulk of last year's clutch was sold off, I left my anerythristic holdback in the sphagnum-moss filled container that held the eggs.

I'm almost embarrassed to say I've never cleaned out that one cage. Yet, it smells like moss to this day. I mist it really well when the snake is in blue, at other times it kind of dries out. But nearly a year later, it still smells great and I really never clean anything out of it.

So, anyone else use sphagnum moss as a substrate? I'm about to put the remaining few specimens in my collection on it.
