28th of July
I don't think there are any more L1 nymphs now, however I may be wrong. I currently have 4 L3 nymphs, including the one that had a mismoult when moulting to L2. Fortunately, her two legs regenerated however are absolutely tiny and she is only around the size of an L2 nymph.
As promised, here are some pictures:
Just finished moulting to L3

Current enclosure

The tiny nymph (nicknamed Wilson by my family), regenerated legs are very faint

Didn't notice your reply dermy, I think her legs will remain a bit smaller than her other ones.
2nd of August
Not much to say really, all of the nymphs are doing well with no mismoults occurring. As with all of my phasmids, these guys now have coir as a substrate. Anyways, here are some pictures:

22nd of August
I came home today and was happy to see that all of these are doing really well. There are a lot of 4th instar nymphs with very obvious wing buds. 
Pictures will be up fairly soon:)

Yeah these girls are getting big now, two more moults into the 4th instar this evening. One thing to note about these guys, they used to run in every direction when I was doing maintenance during the 1st instar, which they thankfully stopped up until now. Now as soon as one starts running for the top whenever I do anything, most of the others will follow her!

30th of August
These guys are all 2nd-4th instar, all of them growing like weeds. Today, I managed to get a picture of quite a few feeding on bramble. I also have a video of a nymph moulting whilst hanging from another which I will upload fairly soon.

16th of September
I have my first adult insect now, it turns out the nymphs with the large wing buds are subadults and I must've missed a few moults I guess, or grouped different instars into one instar. Some bad moults unfortunately, 2 nymphs lost a leg each during their moult to subadult and one nymph has only four legs.

Wow that thing looks awesome! Too bad about the mis-moults, I hope they can at least live happy lives Smile

Have fun with them! They look like the common ones most people keep.

Are you going to try your hand at breeding them?

From what I hear they lay eggs like mad, so I don't think I'll have to try:lol:.

It should be a fun experience for you for sure to breed them on a larger scale, but you'd need the supplies for it.

The thing is these guys are available everywhere, so breeding on a large scale may not be a great idea.

Ah okay, well maybe with a different species. It would be cool to go with something that not many people have access to.
