Armadillo officinalis care?

They're actually in the genus Armadillo, not Armadillidium. 🙂 They've seemed quite easy in my experience. I give mine moderate ventilation with a lightly moist substrate that's about 2-3 inches deep. I hear that they're adapted to arid environments in nature, so they should be able to take some dryness.

Yep, I just came back to fix that typo once I realized... 😁. What variety do you have / reccomend?

I'm currently keeping an unlabeled line of A.officinalis. Not sure if habitat preferences vary at all between the different localities that are available.

According to my research, keeping one side of the enclosure wet but not soggy, then the middle lesss wet, then the other side on the dry side is a good idea so they can choose where they want to be.
