I have an L4 cilnia humeralis in a vial with a fake plant and nothing else. I was just wondering if it's recomended to use substrate or if it's ok to leave as is.
Kool it is in a vial, and funny you mention Padkinson because that's who I bought it from.If it's in a vial just make sure there's room to molt. Padkison, the resident mantid expert, reccomends that the height be about 3x the length of the mantid.
None of mine have substrate right now.
