21st of July
Two more nymphs have moulted to L2, meaning that 4 out of 5 nymphs are now in the second instar. Both moults were successful without any issues.
Pictures will be posted in the evening:)

Very happy to see that the first nymph has now moulted into L3, successfully. No more nymphs have hatched since the last update.
Pictures will be up tonight:)

25th of July
Another nymph has hatched this morning, bringing the total to six. The nymphs have been moved to the C.morosus' old enclosure, which will be their final home. There are currently 2 L1 nymphs, 3 L2 nymphs and 1 L3 nymph. Anyways, here are some pictures:

Another nymph has hatched this morning, bringing the total to 7. Not sure how many more will hatch as there are only four more eggs and I think some of those might be duds. I'll post some new pictures fairly soon:)

An L1 nymph has moulted to L2 and another nymph hatched, bringing the total to 8. There's still only one L3 nymph, however another should be moulting shortly. There are three eggs remaining and I'm not sure how many, if any, more hatch.

It will be interesting to see how they grow up. Even if no-more hatch 8 is still pretty impressive!

2nd of August
Another nymph has moulted to L3, which means I have 2 L3 nymphs, 3 L2 nymphs and 3 L1 nymphs. Also, I recently changed their substrate from paper towel to coir, which is great for maintaining humidity and looks a lot more natural than paper towels.
Anyways, here are some pictures:
Recently moulted to L3 (bad pictures)


Peering into the enclosure


Stick insects eat the skin they shed, so I rarely get a chance to get the skin. However, this time I got to it before it could be eaten.

4th of August
A nymph has hatched yesterday morning, bringing the total to 9. Only two ova remain and one of them has a bright red colouration that the other ova did a few months ago, so it probably won't hatch.

Yeah, really pleased with that. I think one more might hatch, which would be great.

I agree with luke that is a very good percentage of eggs to hatch out! Good Luck with them!

Quick update before I go on holiday, the tenth nymph has hatched! This will be the last one as the remaining egg hasn't developed at all.
