I thought I would get around this by using masking tape, but it was too
permeable and the peat dried too quickly. Perhaps a partial wrap with
electical tape would work, I don't know, just speculating.
What I have been doing recently, with some success, is to store the eggs in
water for a week or two, then put the good eggs on peat in a bag for storage.
The surprise was that some N. foerschi hatched in water after just 3 weeks.
They were not very sturdy and most of them just wasted away in a week or so.
So, don't leave them too long in water unless they are capable of water
incubation, as well as peat incubation.
