Tips from Fran
Leptinella squalida is the basic Leptinella offered at most retailers. It is a great grower and takes a tremendous amount of foot traffic. I love the fact that it roams and will creep into any little crack or crevice you might have, thus our exception noted in this listing to the left. It can take some extreme heat for a while, but without water will just simply fry. So try it in sun, but give it enough water so it won’t turn into a crispy critter.
