Is it best to let it dry before using it? Will I be able to put live plants in the tank?

I usually just squeeze the water out of it until it's just damp and then put it into the cage. I know it isn't good for it to be soaked, but if it's dry then plants won't thrive and it won't keep a good humidity in the cage.

The crickets shouldn't be in the frog cage longer than a few hours or so...how do you know they are mouldy?

I must have missed them. Then about 3 days later I notice them because they have hurried themselves in the dirt

lol yeah they will do that. They will also lay eggs in the dirt too if they are adults, but that doesn't do any harm to the tank, and often those eggs won't hatch without the right temps or humidity anyway.

But you should be fine with just some damp (not soaked) cocofiber substrate, but if it doesn't work for you, you can always go with damp papertowels that you change daily/every other day.

coco fiber isn't "nutricious" for plants, but a LOT of plants don't require any so yeah...
