There is not just one way how to successfully breed phasmids. Breeding conditions which work well for one breeder might not lead down the road of success for another breeder. There is a complex interplay of different factors at work when breeding phasmids. And these factors vary quite a bit from breeder to breeder. All too often we can not change certain factors, like breeders in Europe have a limited choice of food plants during winter while breeders in tropical countries face the difficulties of high temperatures. Let's make the best out of whatever we have available. Keep an open mind, and allow yourself to try out something new from time to time. Only those who dare to think out of the box will change the world
