When you're an entomologist, you have to take pics like that all the time. You don't want to hear what my friends call me :smile:

That's pretty good to have those breeding as well.

Congrats Françios!

You are in luck my friend!, all my bugs seem to dissapear for some reason...

I suspect they got snagged by birds over here..lot's of smaller birds come to search for insect's on the porch real early in the morning :P

The leafs got messed up as well..all sticking to one and other in a clearly unnatural way..so my best guess is birds..no feathers got left behind tough..

I spotted just one really tiny one in the leaf axils..i hope it will last!

I'm not allowed to keep the plant indoors..so it's probably going to be relocated soon..to keep it alive someway..

I'm really glad to see it's going better at your place(tu), who know's in the near future we'll pop over there, and i'll take it along to "borrow" some of yours :smile:

Danny...

p.s. Does your son feel better now?..i hope so!

When you're an entomologist,

Which reminds me of something pointed out the day.

People into Birds are Bird ers
People into Moths are Moth ers

Yet for some reason
People into Bugs prefer entomologists

Vic2 said that :Laie_71mini: I think he had one too many.
I am a moth er mostly (properly Lepidopterist), but in this case, it would be Hemipterist, as these P. roridulae are in the family Hemiptera.

Did you breed your Pameridae direct in your Roridula, François ? They don't may go away from them ? I'm interested in the breeding of insects, and naturally by this bug with the culture of Roridula, but I mean they have to be keeping in a terrarium.
