I have now lost my fourth, yes 1....2...3..4....L. violacepes.
All from different breeders, guys I got plenty of T's from who we all know, so the problem isn't there.
All my others thrive, I just can't seem to keep these guys alive. :igiveup: :igiveup:
I keep them the same as all my pokies, just with slightly higher humidity and a bit more moisture.
They do fine until about 4 or 5 cm and then ........ tickets.
Sad thing is since I started in the hobby it is one of the two I have most wanted in my collection.
That and a H. lividum.
Sorry for the late reply, had a bit of trouble with my internet.
I keep them very similar to my pokies, temps between 22 and 27 degrees, humidity about 70 percent.
Seeing as they were all still small, they had quite a bit of substrate.
Also kept in deli cups, therafter in the same enclosures I use for all my others. If you look at my pictures you can get an idea of them.
Like you said Jake, maybe they just are my kryptonite...
Maybe I must try the H.lividum
