Re: [Killietalk] Hybrids
I have, over the years, and on a regular basis, hatched out eggs of N.
rachovii KNP and N. orthonotus KNP that have been in storage for more than
years. My record for these two populations is just over 5 years incubation
for the former and 4 years and 5 months for the latter. That was for
that I hatched about a year and a half ago. And, in both cases, there were
still clear, undeveloped eggs in the peat in question. If this can happen
captivity I have no doubt that it also does in nature.
Is the moisture level kept at the point when you bag the peat(from reading
about this it seems to be a hands on feel for the right amount left in)? Do
you have to store them at a cooler temps ect.? What makes the best long term
storage in general? Did you get a descent hatch rate(I would expect 50%
would be good on a 5 year wait)? Thanks again.
