The site did have a lot of good information...the only thing I wonder about is this...
"green leaves which are eaten to help digesting prey with low chitin content such as caterpillars". Haven't seen any articles indicating this....and I never find undigested leaves in any feces...not even in the females that strip pothos plants bare.

Is it saying that if there's not enough chitin then the cellulose in leaves takes its place? Cellulose is digestible as far as I know but chitin isn't so how does this help?

I also used a different method of incubation...but there are quite a few different ways of incubating the eggs with varying success. My hatch rate was almost always 100% for viable eggs.

Did everyone see this part of the site?
