    I've been using this method for a year now and it works incredibly well. I'll post some pictures of my 10month olds from last year to show how large they are tomorrow

    All gorgeous. Fat face looks like he has a lot of new growth, and that plastron is waaay cool.

    Did I miss you describing your new method along the way somewhere, or in another thread? I just picked up a new little fella and would really like to know what's working for you.

    The suspense is killing me! What is the new method, Diamond? Or was it included in pics of your enclosures? Closed chamber, CHE, MVB, open container of water, a mountain of greens.

    I can't believe the paper substrate stays in place for any more than 5 seconds...

    I promise it's coming. I just haven't found the time to type out a thorough explanation. Life has been 100mph lately!

    It's been quite some time so I figured I'd update you guys on some members of my group. So after all the PPs I've raised up only TWO have proved out to be females so here are some pics of my PP girls. First is my largest and oldest female . She's not yet of producing size but is getting close.
