"got some crickets for me??"

this is one of my masobe females which is in my stock for more than 2 years now. When she's hungry her head comes out as you see on the picture. Normally that happens when the lights in her terrarium goes out. Then I have to take my tweezers and give her some crickets or when I haven't enough time I just throw them in. :wink:

Nice picture and congrats on keeping her alive two years. What do you keep your temperatures at most of the year? Also, do you keep her cage fairly damp?

Temperatures are around 25C (70F) (not over 26C (78,8F)) during the day and at night around 22C. When we have winter here in Europe I keep them without any heating source in the cage so temperatures do not climb over 24C (75,2F) during the day. But I think that night temperatures should drop even more I think they could reach 19C (66,2F) or what do you think?

My animals sleep under cork bark. I mist the cage every day and every other or third day I pour the whole cage and the orchids. The water flows to their hiding places a little bit, too, but I never pour or mist the places directly.

Thanks for the information gecko84. So far everyone with that kind of set up are the only ones with long term success.

Here I have a pic pf the whole cage where the above female lives in:

For my male and my other two females I chose another kind of setup because they are not 100% acclimated yet, so I can controle them better:

I also made pics of some other cages so if you are interested here's the link: :wink:
