Advertisement Ive been wanting to raise isopods and decided to gather some wild types the other day. I have 2 enclosures, one with an Armadillidium sp. (I believe A. vulgare) and one Porcellio sp. (I believe P. scaber). If anyone can confirm this from the pictures, I'd greatly appreciate it! For the enclosures I used 6qt sterillite totes. The substrate consists of topsoil from around our compost pile and a mix of hickory and poplar shavings. For the leaf litter i gathered some assorted hardwood leaves (Mostly cherry and aspen) and a small amount of fir needles. Each enclosure also has a piece of fir bark. For the moisture gradient, i dampened the whole top layer then watered 1/4-1/3 of the enclosure. Any tips/tricks/criticisms are welcomed!
