How does this work @Graceface? My nymph already has a lot of green. She may lose it?
Well, she just molted, right @hysteresis? Color post molt takes a few days to sort itself out. Iris didn't turn green until L6. Bellatrix was green as of L4 and stayed that way all through her molts. It depends on a lot of factors, including genetics, humidity, temperature, and perch coloration. I would say if she is green now, she will probably stay green.
I agree with @Graceface! Remember ButterRum-Verde turned green a week after her molt but only after she was on a green perch and misted everyday multiple times a day. I think they change accordingly to what’s needed. When I got Iris, she was green but she has settled into a yellow green now. Many factors.
