Australian Leaf Insect Eggs. The Australian Leaf Insect Phyllium monteithi, require a room temperature from between 21 and 28 deg C and an enclosure of minimum size of 30cm x 30cm. I have found the best plant to feed Phyllium monteithi on is the Lilly Pilly species Syzygium australe. If purchasing a plant in a pot, a Psyllid resistant type is recommended - especially in the Southern Australian States. Also please ensure the soil in the pot or the plant has NOT been treated with insecticide. Egg hatching instructions included. Eggs are sent by tracked surface mail and the postage cost is included in the egg price. If ordering with live insects, the eggs will be included with your insect order and I will include extra eggs to cover the duplication in postage costs. (Eggs NOT sent outside Australia or to WA. )
