Firstly thank you to Silvrav for posting this for me as i use a smart phone site wont allow me to upload photos from it.

Yes these are sorong green tree pythons. This was an experiment on a full natural self sustaining mini eco system.The photos above are how it started. If im lucky you will get to see the latest photos.

This setup has been running for a year now and never been cleaned or soil removed.
They have also been copulating in here and hope to have eggs soon.
Took a lot of research and time to do this and input from diffrent sources.
Thanks guys for the comments this is my first attemp to do this and will soon try to provide this type of
Setup for my entire collection depending on there individual enviromental requirements as best i can.

I think Justin meant these are not Tree Boas and this is posted in the wrong section.

How do you mean "never been cleaned" ? How do you manage that? Does'nt it give off a smell?

@ CarlaSmit87 the bio activity breaks down the waste into compost baisically plants use it up.
Realy large stools and dead plant matter are removed. Tank has a fresh earthy smell. If it smells bad its not working. Earth worms also eat up the waste and help air rate the soil.

Will give basic run down if you want more details your welcome to contact me.

1. Use uvb 2.0 for plants. 40w heat emitter is used to heat air. Large heating pad placed on base off tank on warm side.
Built hide / egg box elivated secured to floor.
2. Make moist soil mix use potting soil some gravel, coconut husk, crushed oysyer shells and fine orchid bark.
Add thick layer soil 10 cm plus. Add rocks drift wood to your liking
Plant your plants hardy plant brimiliads are great indoor plants work well.
Water and allow plants to settle I waited a month, you can leave plants in pots.
You should see little bugs and things moving in the soil turn soil once a week.

3. Add your branches hiding spots for snakes if you like.
Introduce your animals to the tank. For humidity I spray it heavily over the soil where the heater pad is.
Dont place plants here ground heat wet and dry conditions plants die. Water plants as you would your garden.
Add earth worms to help eat the waste matter. Excess stools and plant matter should be removed as it takes too long to break down.

4. Mist as required. Water soil over heater pad to maintain humidity your animal requires. For this setup I maintain 80%.
Take your time dont rush it. If you do it right you wont have change your soil for me so far One year and three months. At the most I would remove half the top layer replace with fresh mix up real good without disturbing your plants.
