If this is so, wouldn't it be important that the eggs are
There is no reason not to open the container to look for eggs. Seeing eyed up
eggs in peat is difficult at best, but nearly impossible through plastic bags
or other translucent containers. 30 degrees C or 86 degrees F is too warm to
allow any window for hatching opportunity. You could easily go right past the
hatching time. 80 degrees is better, 78 is even better. Is your daytime
temperature 30 degrees or is your average temperature 30 degrees C? Have you
actually measured the temperature in the peat?
