If you bought them from home depot, I'd be a little cautious since they use pesticides. You might be better off returning them and purchasing some online that sells them without pesticides. OR. Plant some in a small container, put in a spider from outside, and see how it fairs. If it dies or starts to seem ill, then you know the pesticides are still active.
Hey, Galapheros...just wondering if the palms are still doing good. If you don't mind me asking; what kind of substrate do you have in your terrarium, and what kind of lighting set-up are you using? I'm considering using some of these myself.Good point to mention, I considered that. When I got home, I dropped them in a 200 gal tank outside that captures rainwater, left them their for 24 hours, sunk to the bottom. Water, sun, ...breaks that stuff down over time kept them outside for several days. They are doing great in a terr I have now, no signs of ill health. Imo, so far, great terr plants.
Yeah they are tanks. I've sold the avic I put in there a while ago, tank is empty of spiders and have quit watering them for two or three months. Still alive and kicking.Thanks for the info Galapheros, much appreciated. I've read that those palms are fairly hardy plants, and that they can handle indoor lighting conditions.
