Favorite leaf litter for Blaberus/Archimandrita?

Recommended Posts

So in your experience do Oak leaves work best or better than Magnolia leaves? I am building an enclosure for A. tesselata and want to provide them a leaf litter for not only their comfort but the occasional munch.

If you can get them, both would be great. It's a nice mix of textures, both for them to hide in and for visual punctuation. If you can only get one, I'd say probably the oak leaves- roaches seem to find them a bit more palatable.

I feed mine dried sugar maple leaves, which is another hard wood. They love it. Most of my roaches prefer it to oak, but I only have access to Northern Pin Oak.
