Since healthy emeralds spend very little (if any) time on the bottom of their enclosures, many keepers (myself included) use water as a substrate. Some use paper towels/newspaper, cypress mulch or sphagnum moss (or a mixture of the 2). The key is to find something that helps keep the humidity up even with the relatively low temps and higher air circulation requirements ETBs have.

A healthy emerald will spend its days tightly coiled in a branch and its nights cruising the branches or just hanging in the hunt position waiting for prey to wander by. Its suggested that some snakes will live their entire lives in the same tree, never (or at least rarely) going to the ground.
