N. rhombifolia ooth hatching info!


Recommended Posts

I pulled out 3 ooths from my primary colony of N. rhombifolia to see if they'd hatch at room temp (67-72). I kept the humidity pretty high (part of the paper towel they were on molded up a little.) After about 2 months, they finally hatched. (The others, kept at nearly 90 degrees, hatched possibly 2-3 weeks after being laid!) There are quite a few babies (only 2 ooths have hatched so far) and I believe the other ooth will hatch soon too.

I know many people are having trouble with this species; my best advice is to warm up the adults to increase production and keep the humidity very high.

Ugh! Now you guys are making me want to try them! Knock it off will ya?! I've got enough species. Well, I guess there always room for one more... or two or three... I did just build six new bins to have around as extras...

Great experiment. Thanks for posting that.
