I am receiving my first dubia roaches in a few days (yay!) and I'm going to attempt to start a colony. During some research, I read that they can get all the moisture they need from their fruits and veggies. Can anyone verify this? I'm not opposed to using water crystals, just curious.

They can but the ladies appreciate the extra humidity when dropping some young.

I have a lot of B.dubia babies of all sizes under those "egg hide" and I can guarantee you that I've never gave them a water dish, water crystals or else. Only fresh, well clean carrots and such. Room temperature. Nothing else.
