This pretty roach can be slow growing, with nymphs occasionally taking two years to reach adulthood. The long wait is worth it, as the stunning adults are day active and comical. A deep, layered substrate with crushed dead hardwood leaves is needed to keep the nymphs happy. The adults produce many oothecae, which hatch after what seems like forever (in my experience, this is approximately 3 months).
