Red runner ootheca hatch time

Recommended Posts

How long does it take red runner ootheca to hatch normally? I know it probably depends on temperatures and humidity right? But how long would it take them to hatch with temperatures in 65-69 degrees?

And also what is the maximum time I would expect an ootheca to hatch or still be viable? Like how long should I wait until the ootheca can be regarded as not going to hatch or non viable?

It can take a couple months, definitely longer at 65-69 degrees. I have mine in a deli cup in a larger container with wet paper towels underneath a heat lamp that stays at a constant 80-90 F. Most ooths take about 2 months to hatch. If the ooth has any notable dents or wrinkles on it, then it likely dried up.
