I'm really excited because I've just had my first hatchling from my batch of extatosoma tiaratum eggs that I had ordered online. She's eating and moving well and I have done loads of research but I was wondering if anyone has any tips that come from experience?

Don’t use exo-terras, they are a money vacuum and not exactly adequate to any phasmid. Either use storage tubs or you can DIY exo-Terra like enclosures that are more suitable for the Phasmids and much cheaper.

I've used a storage tub that's sturdy stood up right and put bug mesh windows in and bug mesh on the ceiling as I heard that was safer for them to hold onto when they molt

That’s what I do, it’s one of the easiest and best methods.Good luck!
