  1. Mmmmmm!

    Some Dutch treats from a mantis brother!

    Any of this look familiar to you, @Little Mantis😍

  2. Nooooooo. Not for beginners. Beginners always overspray.
  3. Easy to hand feed. Easy keeping too, bc they dont want too much humidity. On the flip side though, beginners tend to overmist and that hurts them more than most.
  4. I hear you might have Mantids for sale.

  5. Someone buy Joey's orchid. What a sweet deal!

  6. All the best in 2020!

      I run out of steam once in a while. Yep.

  9. I see one tiny black spiny baby. Shouldnt they all drop pretty much at once?

      Haaaa im so confused now. I dont think our thoughts are synced up. The two ooths you sent are bleph and gongy. The bleph is still cooking. 

      My spiny has produced two oothecae and the first ooth is the one that dropped only one nymph. 

      That was yesterday. Is that all I can expect, or do spinys hatch across days. 

      And yeh, your gongy ooths are "the bomb". Lots of babies. TY.

      Ah yes, we were on different pages. I think the spinys can drop in a few days.

      @Jaywo cool thanks. I took the lone 'scout' to its own cup for feeding. Maybe we'll have a few more drop. I'll look to the second, and any subsequent ooths for more babies though. I just wouldve expected way more on the first day. None yesterday. :)

       

  10. Maybe I'm embarrassed to ask. Yet here I am. How long do male adult ghosts live? How long to incubate ghost ooths?

      MantisGirl13

      Male  ghosts live 1-2 months. Ooths incubate for a month.

  12. I must confess: I have killed some mosquitos tonight.

  13. The plant has seen better days. But Caleb is having a great one, enjoying a candy between swims. Beautiful day. 🍁

      Time to turn off the pool heater. 

      92°F water. 

      No wonder the kids didn't want to get out. 😏

      That's hot water! Good luck with the paradoxa! I just got my first fertile ooth from the ghosts tonight!
