    Help with Deroplatys Lobata

    Woah. That’s helpful. I’ll check that out. DL is doing better for some reason. Still slow, but more lively. I cleaned her home and put the heat up a little too. Looked like a bit of mold on the cover. Hasn’t had a molt since 8/20. Hoping all is ok.

    Help with Deroplatys Lobata

    Hmm.. that’s interesting. I’m new to Deroplatys species so I just assumed it was what I bought. I keep it pretty warm during the day. Like low 80’s and probably upper 60’s to 70 at night.

    Help with Deroplatys Lobata

    I’m hoping to understand more about my female Deroplatys Lobata. She is an instar 4 and is suddenly lethargic and not so sure footed. Seems sleepy often. I thought it might be molting time but she recently molted. Then she refused food for 10 days. Recently she has eaten. I’ve been spraying...

    Corrections appreciated. I have one male and one female. Im guessing instar refers to how many molts they’ve had? I got the female as a 2nd instar and is now at 4. For the last few weeks the female has been lethargic and wobbly. I thought she might be ready to molt again but it’s not the case...

    Oh….um Lobatta. The male is pretty active. The female has been oddly lethargic lately. Not ready for molting. Unlike her. A little clumsy too. U sure what’s what. I was told this species is pretty low key so I’m trying to wait it out.

    Thanks for the welcome. I’ve had Chinese mantids in my yard for many years and decided to actually buy a mantid. I bought a golden mantis which became and adult this summer. I put her outside to live her best life. I now have a few Dead leaf mantids. Male and female.
