Chrysina gloriosa


Recommended Posts

I just acquired a colony of 15 Chrysina gloriosa.


After so long finally . "whoot" It is truly an EPIC DAY!


I have been keeping C. Woodi and C. Beyri for 3 generations, and just started keeping p. punctata.


Any one have any good tips or any trick i need to know about or grievances anyone would like to share about the lovely c gloriosa?


Would it be best to pair them all out and separate them? or keep them all in one huge tank?


Currently they are all together in the substrate mix I used for the other jewlies, an awesome oak wood root mix i run thur the wood chipper along with some decayed oak and maple leaves.

I have that mixed with some potting compost but not more than 5 percent of the mix, I run it threw the chipper until it is almost powder fine.

The substrate depth is 6 inches, and they are in my humidity room "always 85 percent and above its a jungle in there"


I currently am feeding them some sprigs of juniper, and some beetle jellies.

Do they prefer one flavor over the others? I currently have mango, melon , maple, pink sugar, some strange bright blue berry one, banana and lactose jellies.

Or would they prefer maple syrup?

Anything special to get them to ovaposite?



thanks in advance
