Pacmaster Posted August 7, 2009 Share Posted August 7, 2009 I have had my lats for months and months now, and everything has been fine. Lately I started noticing less and less nymphs. Now I see piles of oothecas on the substrate. Granted, Ive never really paid attention or tried to see whats going on in there, as everything was good. But since Ive noticed how hard it is to find smaller fresh nymphs, and seeing all the oothecas just laying around, I guess something is off. I havent changed any aspect of the way I keep or have kept them. This has been noticed more and more over the last 1 month. I took a few females that had oothecas sticking out and put them in a separate container so I can more closely monitor whats happening. Since I never bothered to notice before, is it normal for the oothecas to be placed on the substrate like that, and how long does it take for it to actually hatch? I always thought the nymphs hatched out while it was still attached to the female??? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
