Well reared and photographed!I really must try some of these this year - I still have several to see.How did you keep the mines?
Hi Oliver. I placed the occupied mines on 2cm moss on top of 4cm potting compost in a clear yoghurt container with the original top in position. The pot was kept outside, under cover, out of the sun until a few weeks before normal flight period before bringing into the warm house. This method has worked well with semipurpurella too.
