These are the Violin mantis i have been raising in the last nine months. i began with 2~L2 males and 1~L3 female and have been able to rear them all to adulthood & breed the female with at least one of the males. She laid 5~Ootheca and one (the only i have incubated, which was the 3rd she laid0 has hatched 4/22/14. the Ooth was kind of small but produced 13 Violin Nymphs.
I know that ghosts range from browns to greens and heard that humidity plays a part. higher humidity = greener ghost. What I think is weird is that I have several ghosts in adjacent containers that receive the same amount of misting and light, but some are green and others are not..??
