with bark so is there a way I can persuade the female to lay eggs in the box?


Our girl had a bark plant pot with substrate and moss in it and seemed likely to lay there but despite looking many times I never found any eggs. Got up this morning to find two teensy cresties! God knows where she laid the eggs!

They're now safe and sound in a big cricket keeper after a bit of a mad rush round to set it up!
