How do you prepare your substrate? Sterilization, content, etc.

It can depend on the species. The standard that I use is store-bought eco-earth / coconut fiber. Along with that, I add varying amounts of fallen leaves and rotten wood (usually oak), which I microwave to sterilize then store it in the freezer. I'm sure all species will benefit from the added leaves and wood, but it's not vital to all.
