Honestly, I'm so glad I found this channel. I'm very squeamish and I hate bugs but the way you present these creatures is so delicate and honest, I love it. Now I'm slowly starting to appreciate the aesthetic of these little guys, even the wasps!

Hi Dr. Plants, I love the little mesocosm/vivarium you made for your mantis. Although, I have a few husbandry concerns that you may want to look out for in setups like this for mantises. Primarily, as mostly arboreal animals, mantises have a tendency to require high perches to climb and rest on, and usually dislike having to walk on the floor of their enclosure. They also require somewhere that they can hang upside down so that they can molt properly. In the enclosure you made, the easiest way I can think of to fix this issue would be cutting a large hole in the lid and covering it with mesh so the mantis can climb on it. This mesh lid would also ensure better ventilation in the enclosure, decreasing the risk of a failed molt (depending on the specific needs of your mantis species). The only other major issue I can see with this vivarium moving forward would be the resources available to your isopods. While springtails can survive just about anywhere that is wet and can grow mold, larger isopods generally require extra sources of calcium and organic matter outside of what other vivarium occupants can provide. Periodically adding dead leaves and cuttlebone to your soil could help mitigate this issue. Sorry if this comment comes off as being rude. I just thought sharing some of what I've learned through vivarium keeping might help you out.

This kind of mantis has the nickname “orchid mantis” in my mother tongue ( very accurate imo), I am scared of bugs but still fascinated by their beauty. It’s nice to see people like you appreciate and take care of these weird, wonderful tiny creatures.

Just a heads up, spiny flower mantises are really weak to mold, so make sure to give them extra ventilation to prevent still air!

Mantises are one of my favorite animals, one of my fondest memories is finding one when I was younger and for fun I started hunting prey for it in the garden, sure enough for several days it came back to meet me on the patio table awaiting a meal. But then I never saw them again I was very sad how short lived that friendship was. I love everything about this project, except for how claustrophobicly small it is I hope they get a bigger space and for things to grow out more

that's totally cool! I dislike bugs and find them scary irl but watching videos about them and seeing them in movies and games is fine... I do wanna ask however... do mantis have camouflage capabilities? Because that one on the flower looked a lot more like the flower when it was on it... and didn't look exactly like that on your hand

Just be careful with the orchid. They’re very susceptible to mould and fungus and being an epiphyte, do better in extremely well ventilated areas, especially if their roots are buried in soil (wood chips) like yours is (as opposed to mounted on wood). I hope the terrarium and it’s inhabitants are doing well :)

I think orchids are not meant to have their roots in soil. They grow their roots on tree bark in the canopy.

I live in CT and our state insect is the praying mantis. This fall i was super lucky to have one hanging around my marigolds i had planted in my garden at work. It was there for a few days, and i would check it out and photograph it. After a couple days on the same marigolds i noticed it looked different than other mantis' I had seen in the past, so i did some research, and sure enough it was a pregnant female. I was blessed to witness it give birth and lay its egg sack on the marigold bush. Marigolds are a natural pest deterrent, deer and most insects do not like the smell, so i think the mom knew this and thought it would be a safe place for her babies. I have never witnessed a birth in person and i must say, it was one of the most beautiful, fascinating things I've ever seen. She hung upside down from a branch and used 2small mandibles at the end of her abdomen to apply the eggs to the branch. The eggs came out like an expanding foam you would use the insulate. The sack hardens up, and overwinters, from what i understand anyway. The sack in still on the dead marigolds, and im hoping i can record the babies emerge from the eggs this spring. ✌❤

When I was in college we found a mantis in our frat house. We named it mantis toboggan and kept it for months in a little terrarium, it would eat anything that moved, really cool to watch it hunt. Once we found a black widow and put it in the tank and the mantis murdered it so fast, it was crazy

I had a praying mantis move into my living room about a month ago. I fed him every day or two but I didn't want to put him in a container. He seemed quite content on my curtains. After a while, he started getting defensive towards the crickets and wouldn't take food from me anymore. I decided for his own good that I should evict him since there aren't many natural food sources in my living room's ecosystem. Do you have a link or recommendation on how/where to source these rare insects? A reputable company you prefer?

I live in Virginia, two summers ago I had a wild, native mantis make it's home in a potted lantana on my side porch. We named her Waldo and got to see pretty much every stage of her life cycle. We saw her molt, hunt and eat, release pheromones, mate several times, and lay her egg sac. Watching Waldo everyday that summer was one of the best natural experiences I've had. Thank you for putting in the effort and doing stuff like this so others can experience it, cuz it's really really cool!

The Praying Mantis is both my wife's and mine Absolute FAVORITE insect. They are also human friendly and affectionate. I met a Mantis one day and spent an HOUR playing and enjoying each other's company. He'd run up one arm, across my neck and down the other arm. He'd then stand there, look at me, twist his head then run back up my arm back over to the other one a few times ! I truly felt a love and acceptance from it, then put it back on a tree. Good Bye my friend ! 😄
