      Thank you ❤️ 

  2. I invited Yen Saw to join my FaceBook group and OMG he joined. He is like the Mantis Breeder Hero LOL LOL  I'm such a fan!! 

    I've ordered from him a few times and he very much deserves every good thing said about him.

  3. Today was a great molt day for my collection :) 

    I have three Thistles - Blepharopsis mendica left from my group of five and all three molted last night with no issues :)  so they live to molt another day :)

    Three of my Giant Asian - Hierodula membranacea also decided to molt and also molted beautifully ❤️  

  4. Thank you for the info on the 

    Rhombodera cf. stallii and the Leaves and Twigs :) it was very helpful.

  5. I lost one of my Blepharopsis mendica - thistle mantis l3 nymphs today, it's so frustrating when you have no idea why :(

      Blephs aren't so easy. Especially in the later instars. I've lost three at adult molt. 

      Sorry for the loss. 😔

      I do too, not sure why :)

      Probably because it's a lot easier than feeding mantids! Lol

  7. Hello :) 

    Hope today turns out awesome with no losses on our lil guys. Just put in an order for some new babies. I can't wait to start breeding ...

  8. OMG today was one of those days :( 

    Woke up this morning to a dead Thistle nymph. It was trying to molt to L3 *Cries* Its four siblings did fine but for some reason, this lil guy fell and died. 

    However my Giant Asian is doing well and eating well,  with her two legs LOL

      I so understand and omg so sorry :(

      Mine was also the right temp the right humidity, should have been a breeze. But we can do this. Others are so we just have to find our niche!

      How many do you have left?

      Just the same you have, but en route.

      He was my last from my last batch of 3.

      At a loss.

      Yeah this really makes me want to order more, please let me know how it goes with the new batch, maybe we can compare notes and figure this out :)

       

  9. Loving MantidForum, looking forward to learning much much much more and meeting everyone!

      There's a small group of us that carry on daily. Most are quiet, and use the forum for buy & sell. This forum has been here for a loooong time. 

    2. Granny's Mantis Mayhem

      Granny's Mantis Mayhem

      OK, thank you :) 

      I will most likely be a part of those that carry on daily. About the FB group for this forum, is it very busy?

      hysteresis

      Nope. You're better off here, I think. But this is nowhere near as jumping for daily carry-on as MK. I'd prefer a little more traffic here.
