P. wahlbergiis next generation


Katnapper

557 views

Since I last updated on my Pseudocreobotra wahlbergiis they have grown up, some of which are adult and currently mating. None of this new generation shows the bright pink/purple that several of the parents exhibited in their nymph stages. It goes back to the question we all would like to know for sure... is it humidity levels, color of surroundings, etc. that causes variations in the coloring? I don't know.

Here are some of the new generation of nymphs and adults mating.

Congratz! For what ever reason this has turned out to be the hardest species yet for me, i've already lost 4 to mismolts and I can't figure out why :angry:

Kat, I don't think you know how bad I want one of those PW nymphs.. :lol:

Hopefully this generation will breed and I'll have enough to distribute again. ;)

Bummer! I'm keeping them in net cages and misting heavily 1 or 2 times a day. 78-86 degrees in the bug room. Haven't had problems at all that I've noticed with mismolting. Best of luck that things will get better with them as they progress. :)

Have any extra females? I think all I got is males. :(

I don't have any extras at this time.

is 87% humidity enough for these guys?

I would say so, but I cannot give you a specific recommended humidity level. I don't really measure humidity levels in the bug room or in the individual enclosures. I just keep them in net cages and mist once or twice a day.
