    Ours was only tiny when it came hence the small container. The sphagnum isn't compulsory but it does help hold moisture.

    Thanks for your advice. I'll try to get the sphagnum also.

    I want to say yes, but its a bit blurry. I'm sure you've looked up the two shapes though, and the bristle count. I've forgotten the technical terms, sorry, lol. But she's developed enough so it should be clear, and I'd trust your judgement. But if you can get a clearer pic I can say for certain. :)

    My son finally got Tic's old exo out after she sat on it and flattened it and I was surprised how big she was. Of course she's even bigger now. DSCF1506.JPG
