How to use the Praying Mantis Starter Kit

A quick setup guide.

  1. Place the substrate into the tub, filling approximately 3cm in depth to aid humidity levels in the enclosure.
  2. Place the artificial plant into the enclosure, ensuring there is plenty of spread to allow maximum use of the available vertical space.
  3. Use the water spray bottle to lightly mist the enclosure to ensure the correct humidity levels for your species are maintained.
  4. Make sure the mantis is away from the lid before placing on top and pressing down to secure it.
