Green banana roaches will require a light moist soil like cocosoft or ecoearth kept moist for them to burrow in to (the thicker the better). This species is particularly fond of cork bark, we recommend this over anything else including egg crate common with other roach keeping. Adult roaches do climb and fly, so enclosure should be sealed will with lid yet allow for some air exchange. The banana roaches like it hot and humid, one should use an under tank heat mat on 1/2 - 3/4 of the setup. This will keep them warm and happy, while increasing reproduction times. Feed and water should be provided just like any other roach species. Adults are green, nymphs are brown. Only adults can climb and fly, most active at night so one should avoid agitating them at these times. This is a Florida legal species, and can be shipped within the state and owned without any issue.
