Nutritional Requirement

Everybody overfeeds their Chilean rose. BAD IDEA! 

As you first bring it home, do not feed it at all for at least a week, maybe two weeks. It makes no sense whatsoever to stampede it with a bunch of rowdy crickets while it’s still quasi-hysterical from the shipping and handling it endured to get into your care. When you do begin to feed it, only give it one (1) large cricket or the equivalent a week. Or, if more convenient, give it only four or five (4 or 5) crickets a month.
