nick barta Posted August 21, 2016 Share Posted August 21, 2016 I have 4 large colonies (2 G. portentosa and 2 E. posticus) that generate quite a bit of moisture. I had been replacing the egg flats every 2-3 weeks. I decided to try 2 different climb surfaces on the G. portentosa, and have been quite pleased with the outcomes on both. The first picture shows the all-bark climbing surface container. I have a huge supply of the bark, and harvesting is easier than the damp egg crates. The next two pictures are the other colony of G. portentosa with plastic egg flats as the climbing/resting surface. I was doubtful that the roaches would hang on the plastic, and expected to find them all around the bottom, but they are all over the plastic egg crates. When dirty, the plastic egg crates can be hosed/brushed off, or put in the dishwasher, and don’t have to be replaced. I like the natural bark as a surface for looks, but the container is HEAVY… The plastic is washable, and light, and is my favorite of the two. If you want to try some plastic egg flats, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, they are $1.50 each. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
