Hi all, been thinking about moving my cultures of G. caffrorum and G. centurio to a large planted vivarium, but I'd like to keep the two cultures pure. Does anyone know if there's any information on the possibility of hybridization between the two? I've been unable to find much of anything. Thanks!
Hi everyone, I got small Gyna caffrorum and Gyna lurida colonies just a few days ago. Yesterday I found some dead adults in both enclosures, and the live ones are pretty inactive. Nymphs seem to be doing fine, but they aren't very active either. I keep them in large plastic containers with 4 inches deep soil layer (mixture of peat, soil, pieces of bark and leaves). I gave them dry cat-food, orange and apple pieces for food. The temperature is about 25 degrees Celsius. I spray the wall of the container - on one end - with tapid water in every 2 days, so they could drink. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Could you give me any suggestion? Thanks so much for the help!
