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