I'm soon getting a leopard gecko and I want it to be in a natural looking terrarium with plants and stuff but I read that soils with fertilizer can be harmful to them. What should I use that is safe but also helps plants grow?

It may be of some help, I developed this 'organic' option for use with all arid species.

As said, it is certified organic and contains 30% Scottish Volcanic rock

As such it is very safe to use and, with a bit of care, allow you to grow suitable live plants in a Bio-Active system.

About one bag for the small one and prob 2 and a half for the bigger one, depending on substrate depth.

If you’re creative you can mix up your own substrates too.
Standard top soil and play sand is a good alternative and have some left over to do other vivs or do substrate replacement at a later time.

My geckos done well on this for many years. : victory:
