Rainforest bromeliad up to 35 cm
incl. VAT, plusshipping
2 in stock | 1-3 working days | Only valid within Germany. International: 2-8 working days.
Delivery per order: 1 x fertilized ootheca
Based on the size of the ootheca, the number of eggs in it is estimated (see above “Up to xyz nymphs”).
Only oothecae are sold from females that have already provided for offspring (that is 100% mated). Despite high hatch probabilities, unfortunately, I can not give any hatching guarantee, since the absence of hatching can be caused by too wet/dry or cool/hot incubation.
The “cf” in the name means that it is probably the species Creobroter gemmatus (but not with 100% certainty).
Check care further down.
