I'm learning how to raise silkworms in my apartment, and though it's not going very well, I have had a few hatch in many different colors of cocoons. <3
Im hoping that what I think is the problem, actually IS the problem (hygiene) and that I'll start getting truly awesome cocoon/moth hatches once I've figured out a cleaning system.
Im raising them all on chow currently, hoping to move them and my sericulture skills to a homestead in the next few years with plenty of mulberry trees.
Now the pictures! The colorful cocoon bowl looks so much better in the real world and light. The greens are a minty highlighter color, there are light tan colored ones, saturated golden yellow ones. They're all beautiful.
