  • Jurgen Vanhoudt -

    There is a good chance they will. Both Hedera and Schefflera belong to the same subfamily,same for Fatsia and x Fatshedera. I don't have these plants, so will not test it.

  • Rudi -

    Really interesting. :)
    To this way, Schefflera sp. is also a part of Araliaceae.
    Maybe you could try it also, if they will accept?

    from L1, not so strange, preferred wild host plant is Cussonia, related to Hedera.

  • Rudi -

    Hello Jurgen.

    Very interesting, that they are feeding on Hedera.
    Since L1 or later?

    Regards.
