It really depends on what frog you're keeping. If you can answer that then I'll break into lecture mode .

I was thinking about getting some exo terra plantation soil, but considering it's so damn expensive, I thought why not use ordinary non-fertilized potting soil? Good idea? How often should I change it? Would I need to if it was planted with moss?
Then additive free soil should be fine. As for changing it, it really depends on how dirty it gets, but as a general rule I would say every month or two. Ebony's the Bell Frog expert .
Hi Zac, Sorry just seen this thread. I personally dont use soil in my enclosures as I find it messy and cos im a bit of a clean freak when it comes to my frogs, I think it would make cleaning hard. I do however have pot plants that are in an organic soil that I get from a reliable source not far from my house. I also use it for my locusts. My frogs dont come in contact with the soil though as I top and tail the pots with heaps of sphagnum. There are plenty of members that do use soil for their tree frogs so it is an option but im not confidant as to what type of soil is best. Sorry I cant be of more help.
seems that most people who use soil go with organic potting soils, and covering it with moss or other kinds of things so the frogs wouldnt come into contact with it makes it pretty safe. my .02
