Trying Something new for Humidity!

Recommended Posts

I LOVE ebay!!

Bought a 2 pack of Terrarium Moss from Exo-Terra a while ago and they came in today...I figured it would really help with humidity and give my roaches some natural plant material if they want to chow on it. Thus far it appears To be working WONDERS...

Here are some pix..

Nice! I use moss also. They do love it! The Dubias really love to hide in it and I think it makes them extra loving to one another! ;)

So far so good with it too...Seems the Dubia, Discoids and Banana Roaches love to hide in it...Hissers just lay on top of it, but anything helps to increase humidity in Colorado!

I like this roach, are they hard to raise? and is that the real name of them?

Which one?? The Gold Medal's aren't too bad...They just stink something fierce!! Kyle (Zephyr) had them on his site, Buy them from him!

That set-up looks really nice. I've used native moss for Parcoblatta pennsylvanica, it grows on the wood and they probably eat it along with the main course. Also tried moss with hissers and it seems they like to rip it up and kill it, but it does distract the babies from formulating escape plans.

After I read this post I was going to pick some moss at the next expo. Then while I was at The good will I found a box of Zoo med terrarium moss for .99 USD. I love when silly coincidences like so happen! I haven't put it in my enclosures yet. I will soon and take some photographs!
