I have a colony of Orange Porcellio scaber (isopod) that is reproducing well and I thought I might post a message here to see who is interested. I ended up giving away my Utricularia collection a couple years ago due to lack of time and space and I am now ready to get back into carnivorous plant growing.
P. scaber is easy to keep and can be an excellent addition to terrariums/greenhouses as they consume dead plant material and help keep things clean. They can be housed in relatively small containers, but may become cannibalistic as population density becomes too high. I keep mine in an aquarium filled with 2” of slightly damp coco peat. I feed them bread, vegetables and fruit from the kitchen that have started to go bad. I also occasionally provide cuttlebone or cricket food to provide calcium.
Looking for Utrics, subtropical drosera and Mexican Pings.
Sorry about the picture quality, I am too tired to get out my macro photography gear so I took the pic with my Blackberry.
