i think the reason is there can often be a gap between the first egg hatching and the last one. For example a friend of mine who bought Indian stick insect eggs to try out stick insects had a span of around 8 weeks between his first stick hatching and the last one, not sure if that's usually the case as i don't know a whole lot about hatching times but it might explain why sites are different.

Depends a lot on the hatching conditions. I had one aretaon assperimus hatch after only 6 wks but none of the others have so far. Try to keep mine damp at mid 30's. It's just a waiting game really.

on all the websites i have been on its is 1 month to over a year but tbh it all depends on how they are handled and the conditions there kept in.

Hi,
I own a stick insect.
i got it when it was the size of my thumb nail. now it is the size of my hand.
my sister has two. they are both girls (my one is a boy)
One day when me and my sister was cleaning the cage we found an egg,
and another, and another we now have 19 eggs. if you have a boy and a girl the should start mating when they are
2x the size of ur pinki finger
don't worry they will mate. I thought they wouldn't but they did.
when they are double the size of your pinki finger, you should put a container of MOIST soil and put the eggs in. burry them a cm down.
and every time you clean out their cage, check for eggs.
Coz you don't want to throw out eggs!

Your wrong, Indians are the same sex i think. And they should always have a moist substrate to help shed to the next instar, and i had more success with a cricket tub, with damp kitchen roll, and a milk cap with a little bit of tissue in that(not wet) with the eggs on that, all 98 hatched,

And actually, some people do throw out eggs, as they get wayyyyyyyyyy too many of them.
