Iron clad beetle care

Recommended Posts

True ironcalds need rotten wood or shelf fungi for the larvae to feed on, very few people have gotten theirs to oviposit, and the numbers of larvae always seem to be in the single digits.


I don't think one person has reared ironclad larvae to maturity, could be wrong on that though...


And the adults also need lichens or shelf fungi to feed on as well.

Luckily for me I also do mycology. Ive found various hose fungi with their beetle living on it and so far Ive been able to clone (not yet fruit, just started doing this) and get the mycellium onto agar so I can effectively put any fungi into their enclosure to hopefully aid in the breeding process
