Phasmid Forum has been updated!
For those of you who have already been keeping up with the discussions, I've
be working on reskinning the forum for a long while. Now it's much more user
friendly, and we have many more features. A new classified system makes it quick
and easy to add a classified. Plus, there is the value of a feedback system,
automated payment system, and user advert profiles. I've also added an information
database will which will be up and running very soon, then we can all start

| humidity thread? |
| 04-04-2013 - by Leswonder |
| Forgive me but I can't find anywhere to discuss/learn about humidity levels. |
Is there somewhere I can find out more or perhaps I should just present my query?
I've kept Indian stick insects and Macleays Spectres before and thought that Jungle Nymphs would be easy enough to try.
I've had 3 jungle nymphs for about 3 weeks now (two males and a female). The female has had a successful moult but not the males yet.
I brought them home from School where they were kept a week ago and the female has just got less and less active (yet she moulted only a little more than a week ago). Now she is remaining on the floor and unable to grip a leaf if offered.
They have a large net enclosure with bramble and ivy stems and a tray of damp compost.
I wondered if the humidity wasn't sufficient and she is dehydrated.
I mist the enclosure every evening.
I am desperate to save her and this evening I laid sponges soaked in water in a container in there and loosely covered the cage with a waterproof cover.
I am also warming up the room and drying some wet clothes to raise the room's humidity?
Any more suggestions or directions to similar discussions already on here?
Thanks in advance for any help given.
