Default Tips; breeding of P. cinereus and P. cylindraceus

Hey there,
I've been dwelling in a few threads but I ain't got the juice i was looking for so far so I was just wondering as Im going to raise my groups of these two species what were the specific recommendations that are need to fulfill the breeding of these two that id love to accomplish. I'd like to know witch temperatures (numbers are preferred than fallacious terms such as high moderate or familiars) they should take and for how long, humidity levels of soil or anything important enough in the process, even ratio.
Thank you in advance,

Jorge

Mine are exposed to temperatures that drop to 4'c during the winter and as high as 25'c during the summer months. Other than reducing the amount of feedings during the winter time, that is all I do. I don't fool with light schedules, sex ratios, or have a fancy setup. In my opinion, getting them cold enough is the most important thing.

So you define cold enough exactly as 4șC or under a certain definable range such as 10șC or lower? when you refer to yours you refer to one or both or witch of the species?
Are you trying to state that summer heat up is not a definable variable and therefore not of equal importance on the process of breeding? Or should be considered a certain amount of temperature arising that shall be achieved to trigger breeding?

Exactly? No. That's just what mine get down to. Depending on where your species originated from, 10șC could work equally as well. Some specimens from more of the Northern US states would probably need something lower.

Both!

It's equally as important. It's just that the average hobbyist has no problem acheiving the higher end of the temperature range. On the flipside of that though is that most hobbyists either don't lack the means to get them that cool for an extended period of time or are afraid to...
