Hornworm pupae

Hi! I acquired a hornworm in the pupal stage, and have some huge ones getting ready to pupate. Does anyone know if I should tape the cocoon up on the top of their cage (like a butterfly), or just lay it on the bottom on top of soil? Also, would peat moss be acceptable?

Thanks!

Turns out they make wonderful subjects for my macro lens :)
