Um... Are all kinds of mushrooms safe? Any part needs to be removed or anything?

Ok so I FINALLY went to go buy wax worms at Petsmart..........ewwwww gross I saw them alive and eww. :( I didn't buy them. I asked an employee that I was looking for some wax worms and that I didn't even know what they looked like. He just went "oh yeah sure I'll get you some" I eagerly followed him till he entered the employee room. I waited for him outside for a few seconds and he comes out with a little plastic container, he opens it and it looks weird inside....powder stuff that looks like hay I think.............and then.......I noticed something *gulp* it was ugly, gross and sack like. White maggoty things...crawling around... :shock: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I quickly asked him " are they alive??!!!" he goes "yeah", then me again... :shock: :shock: "ewwwwwwww, ok never mind thank you", and then him "ha ha ha ha". :oops: Oh well, at least now i know what they are. :oops:

I would say that all mushrooms safe for human consumption are considered safe for hermie consumption. :wink:

How about gardenia flowers? I have one left on my bush outside.

And as far as maple leaves, can I just go out into my yard and get a few leaves? I have regular green maples, red maple and Japanese maple.

Not sure about the gardenia flowers, I'll have to do some research on that one. :wink: As far as maple leaves go, you can go ahead and pick them, provided you don't spray any pesticides or chemical fertilizers too often. :)

Thanks for the quick answer! :D

Do you know if Mimosa tree leaves or pods (the flowers are gone at this point) are safe?

Well, at least one of the crabs chowed down on the maple leaf I put in the tank. Sat there and ate some while I watched him. :crabbigsmile:
