Got a pair of these a few days ago and was wondering if anybody else kept or are keeping phasmids and has some helpful hints?
At the moment I am feeding them Eucalyptus and Rose and they seem to like it. They aren't the most exciting creatures to keep but they look awesome.

Nice.

Don't really know much about them, but I know that Cornell's entomology department has several species though if you'd like to contact some of the staff and ask. (http://entomology.cornell.edu/cals/entomology/people/faculty/index.cfm)

Thanks Scorpion. I've got all the basic info, just wanted to know if someone else kept them and how. I will drop them an e-mail and see what they have got to say.

I kept them for a year or so. None died of illness, they all eventually died of old age :'( Keep them watered, change the leaves at least once a week, but twice a week should be prefferable.

Thanks dude. The age is the only thing I dislike about them. The female molted this morning and she is now about 10cm stretched out and 3 times as big as the male.
