Do you have any experience with any other Blaberus species? If so, they are like any other Blaberus species for care :). nice deep substrate that is moist. Its a pretty nice species to have if you ask me :).

Polyphaga definitely need substrate, coconut fiber and dead leaves will do, at least 2 inches deep. They need dead leaves in their diet, it is basically all they eat. They'll nibble on dogfood and fruits, etc. They like it dry. Also they can take two plus years to mature, so be prepared for a long wait!

"nice, deep substrate"

Perhaps using "nice" in this manner is an American idiom that does not translate into other versions of English...

It just means a relatively deep substate

Oh jeez... Didn't know you guys didn't know... Yes I meant it is a nice species to keep and a deep substrate is good for them.
