I hope so too! There was another breeder here who had a much larger amount of P.magnifica, sadly his colony crashed. Pseudoglomeris, and really just Perisphaerinae in general aren't the easiest of roaches to culture unfortunately. 

Hopefully they do get a foothold into the US roach hobby. 
So far mine seem to grow fast. Which makes me happy.

I hope so too, they are so beautiful! :D

Glad to hear it, hopefully they will continue to do well in your care!

I managed to make a video of one of the nymphs eating bee pollen:

Loved this video. Is that pollen on the palps or is that the natural color?

I checked it, and I can only conclude that it's the natural color of the palps.

So beautiful. About how big is the one in the photo?

A little over 3 cm / 1.2 inch.

Working on getting ahold of a few myself (emerald roaches). Hopefully I can help get them into the US hobby 😁

They're already here, and doing quite well for several breeders. :)

I finally have my first adults of this species.

Bought nymphs from a German source about a year ago.
Fed them fish flakes, fruit and occasionally some bee pollen.
Kept them on a mix of soil and rotten wood flakes with a few pieces of bark to hide under.  
Temp +/- 22°c, medium humidity, spraying only once every week or two.

Anybody else has any experience breeding these ?

Huh, how tight fitting is their lid? 

Yeah Corydidarum don't really eat their sheds at all, so you'll be finding "dead" individuals quite often! :P

I have a cup full of old molts. It scares me every single time I find one, thinking I lost one.

Seems all Perisphaerinae do the same thing, I've got "dead" Bantua nymphs all over the floor of their enclosure... 😛 Their exoskeletons are so thick that they retain their structure for a while and are apparently inedible or at least very unpalatable to the roaches...
