Leaves

I was told to feed them mulberry and oak leaves, but make sure that you remove all new growth from the sprig, as these can poison Sticks. Mine loves dark green mulberry leaves the most, but just look on some caresheets because there are several other types of leaves that are good for them too.

phasmid food...

They will do just fine on a diet of blackberry leaves. You can also feed them Mulberry , rose, and some will eat oak.
