  1. Proud to report that Mocha molted last and she is still, well mocha! Haha! Operation will she turn green is in effect! Iris has swollen wing buds so I know a molt is coming soon! ButterRum-Verde is living life eating flies and dubias! :)

      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.
