So I've been looking into different 'odd' feeder colonies for the future. Mantids are awesome. But seem to be too much hassle. Sticks on the other hand don't seem too difficult other than a couple concerns. I particularly like D. Gigantea as they look to be maybe the best feeders with their color and large meaty size(especially since I'm feeding adult Panthers and a Parsons). I'm wondering how people consistently feed them that don't have any of their food sources growing nearby. I pulled this off nick barta's site fullthrottlefeeders: "Food My main food is Blackberry as I have it year-round. They will also eat Eucalyptus, Oak, Raspberry, and Sweet Bay (Laurus nobilis)." I don't know of any of this that grows near me, especially through winter. And I'm not sure how much they eat. I have no experience growing blackberry or any of those mentioned, but could a plant be grown indoors to supply their food? Or is it pretty much a no-go unless I have tons available outside? Would appreciate any input! Even suggestions on some unique feeders to colonize would be cool. I really enjoy the bug aspect of this all.
