Adults of these large and stunning African Saturniidae moths will emerge from pupae in approx. 2-5 weeks. Pairing them can be obtained in medium size (40x60cm) cages. Pupae need to be kept on a humid substrate, being careful of avoiding excess of water that can cause mold to grow. High temperatures will help in synchronizing emergence.
