    Interesting! Do you use a rose plant or blackberry bush for them to eat?

    Neat!

    Do you have pics of the eggs before they hatched? Curious to see what they looked like.

    I have more un-hatched eggs. they look like seeds!

    Swords, I use both raspberry and rose, whatever is available at the moment. I prefer raspberry, but when that resource runs thin, I'll turn to roses. They really prefer the raspberry.

    I read that they "have" to have oak as nymphs but you don't find that to be true?

    Did yours take 4-5 months to hatch? Do you have to keep the eggs humid all that time or can you just drop them in a planted terrarium and forget about them until they pop up one day?

    Most importantly will they leave things like orchids and other terrarium plants alone?
