View Full Version : will this converted flexerium be ok for jungle n's?
09-27-2008, 11:23 PM
Do u think it'll be ok? I wrapped 3 sides with bubble wrap, and Iíve wrapped the top and bottom, I've left one side uncovered so I can see my jungle nymphs. Will this hold enough humidity for them though? Click 2 see the pic
Wish I could help you more man i've never used bubble wrap before:rolleyes:, but I personally recommend no mesh at all:p

Should be ok.

I'm really, really,REALLY tempted to buy some et's put them in the flexarium then buy a gigantic storage box and put my jn's in that

go fot it, there a great sp.
To be honest thats what I would do:D

I've changed my mind, the flexarium seems fine for jn's so I may get some more of them. i'm thinking of getting some et's but I wanted to try ec's instead. dave, do u think the flexarium seems ok 4 jn's too? I know u said u don't really know but wat do u think

I use a flexarium at the moment for my adult Jungle Nymphs. I have covered three sides of it with bubble wrap to keep the moisture in and it has damp moss as the substrate. As long as I spray them daily the humidity stays at about 70% / 80%. Although it seems ok for my Jungle Nymphs, I am not that experienced with them but am a bit paranoid at making sure the temp and humidity are correct as to ensure their survival.
Although as some of the guys have said I do agree that they are probably better in an exo.
When I get my exo I will be transfering them into there as I may need the flexarium for the population explosion that may soon happen with my giant thorny and bud wing ova.:eek:
Have fun with your Jungle Nymphs

thanks gill, at least I'm not on my own with this one, if your's are doing well in it, hopefully mine will then. I'm spraying mine daily with warm water to up the humidity
Well I personally wouldn't use them, I don't think they would hold enough humidity as I would like (even with the bubblywrap) and I would say that they cool down to quick at night too.

Dave does have a pretty valid point ( and he's more experienced than me )and as I said I will probably be moving my JN's into an exo at some point which means I won't have to be as paranoid. I find it ok because I am checking the temperature and the humidity alot throught the day and spraying as neccesary and the damp substrate helps I think.

I'm gonna keep them in there, they're a farely hardy species too. as long as I keep sparaying constantly they should be fine

That's what I do aswell, spray them alot!!!
Have fun with your Jungle Nymphs, they're an amasing species.
Im sending Brian money tomorrow or the next, can't wait to get them:)

They are a fabulous species, the male's wings are spectacular. It's an amasing noise when the female rubs her wings together. They wiggle nicely when you pick them up! LOL. The apple green is a beautiful colour.
I uploaded some photos to the gallery.
Has your male flown, I used to have an adult and I never seen him fly:(
09-29-2008, 04:01 PM
I havn't seen him fly yet but if it's as spectacular as the male ET it will b sommat! My male et can fly 4 about 8 feet. Hoping to see the male HD fly at some point too. At the mo I am getting used to handling an aggressive species!:eek: Nah, it's not that bad! They are stunning though with the white stripe down both sided.

jungle nymph males rarely use their wings, the majority of the time they are used for warning predators and showing off in front of the female. If u make him angry he'll go into a defense pose and show his wings off, my male did this to me yesterday, he balanced on 2 legs and tried to clamp me
They are probably to big for their wings:rolleyes:Oh my little female shed this morning:D
09-29-2008, 06:40 PM
great, how big is she now? is there any change in colour?
Well I haven't had a good look at her yet she's been hanging from her leaf all day and I don't want to disturb her:D
09-29-2008, 07:29 PM
lol, my female seems to have grown
Cool none of yours shed yet?
09-29-2008, 07:54 PM
both of my males have
Cool, it take the female about 3 weeks longer for her next shed:rolleyes:
09-30-2008, 07:02 AM
Don't they take 1 year to reach adulthood?
Yeah:rolleyes:it's long wait:(
