I have been including dandelions, cucumber and tomatoes with the lettuce, they don’t appear to be eating much at the moment.
I will remove the paper.
Thank you for your guidance, certainly a learning curve here.
I had to name it Creasy :) the others just have numbers at the moment. They are all lively and keep trying to escape the the glass dishes they are in in the incubator. Dishes are lined with damp kitchen roll and shredded lettuce. Some I think are eating, they will be easier to monitor once they...
Thank you, I’ve kept it in the incubator in its own container with damp kitchen paper and shredded romaine lettuce. Bathed it twice today and definitely improving.
The other 4 that have hatched so far, had all absorbed their egg sacs by the time they hatched. This one does have more egg sac...
