I'm new to keeping termites.  I have a few questions about culturing them.  What type of water do you use for them (tap, RO, distilled, spring water or it doesn't really mater)?  Do they need any kind of supplement or can they just live on cellulose alone? TIA

I use RO/DI water for mine. You could use any distilled, or bottled type water. Id avoid tap water. For my damp woods all they get is water and the wood they live in.
