I keep mine at room temp, about 25-28 and slightly mist every few evenings and have water dish and had no problems for now, but it is about 4-4.5 cm long and is housed on paper towels. Really the best feeders I saw, great species :D Can someone point me out on their full size and maturity info, some breeding input will be great also...

I keep mine 26-28 celcius in groups of no more than 3-5 in large sweater box sized terrariums. I use a substrate of peat and sand with a ratio of 3-1 peat to sand with good luck. I always keep a shallow water dish in with them but keep them rather dry. I do put a moist hide box in with them as well, but will almost never find them in it but rather under it. I incubate the eggs on vermiculite at the same temps with good results and have the best luck fattening up the babies on roach nymphs than crickets. 5-6 cm. would be pretty close to adult size.

Thank you for the info....

I keep my androyensis in a little plastic box with peat like substrate, a hide place, two bamboo branches and a little bottle cap with water. There are 24/25C during the day and 22/23 during the night. I nebulize every evening.

Is it ok?
