Phyllium philippinicum 3rd Instar nymphs x 6

£25.00Price

A fantastic beginner species of Leaf Insect. Phyllium philippinicum are a robust species which feed well on bramble and rose. Males are smaller and narrower than females and can fly relatively well. Females are much bigger and cannot fly as well as the males due to their size.

Lightly mist the enclosure daily but try where possible to just wet some of the leaves or the enclosure sides without getting the leaf insects too wet.

Temps of 22- 26 degrees C is the ideal range but at night it is fine for the temps to drop to around 18 degrees. Temps above 28 degrees C for prolonged periods can be fatal.
