That substrate is far too dry for a humidity loving burm. Personally, for ease in maintenance and cost savings, just use a good layer of newspaper...I've been doing it for years and have never had a single problem. You can douse it with mist and because the paper is heat treated, it is slow to mold. Cypress mulch is okay but you need to be very careful when feeding to prevent ingestion (which can be fatal). Some people use aspen bedding but if I had to recommend a particulate-type of wood based bedding, I would go with Sani-Chips; great stuff.
