Is vermiculite a suitable substrate for Macropanesthia?

Recommended Posts

I see a lot of threads that talk about both fine soils and sand,  so would vermiculite be a viable alternative? I have some nymphs on the way and want to know if I need to go out and buy a different substrate to the vermiculite I have.

Vermiculite COULD work in small amounts in a substrate mix, but honestly you'll be better off using just coconut fiber.

Thanks for the advice, I've ordered coco bricks - only the best for the mightiest of roaches!

No problem, hope they do well for you! :)
