This is my journal of random stuff I'm currently raising.
I have quite a few cultures of various types of these, with more being collected.
Most of these have relatively simple care, with the exception of those that live exclusively on wood. I am feeding them on yeast, pea powder, and in the case of wood dwelling ones, whatever they find growing on the wood. This is not all my springtails, I have many more, but they are either too small to photograph or too active. These include a small orange type with a white band on the abdomen, small wormlike white and black ones, blobby segmented pink and red ones, and more that I haven't spotted.I am hoping to get a variety of new types, including a giant purple variety the same size or larger than solenopsis molesta queens. The round purple one above is particularly enticing in that adults range from purple and blue to yellow, orange and red.
