Temperature: 22-25 °C. Food: vegetable and fruit, birch-, beech- and oak leaves, dead wood, calcium, protein. Nimphs live and feed on the substrate, but also like fresh vegetables and fruits. Males are smaller 
and faster than females and can climb the walls of the terrarium. They show constant interest in females 
and the exploration of new territories. Though having the wings, do not fly.

Temperature: 21-25 °C. Food: vegetable and fruit, birch-, beech- and oak leaves, dead wood, calcium, protein. This kind has a very good appetite: its menu includes everything starting from the substrate. 
Adults are emotional, hissing, but their calmness and confidence can be easily reached by offering a tidbit 
of fruit or vegetable on your hand. They have wings that are used only by males in mating dances. 
Quite strong, with harmless spikes on their feet. Males fight with each other.

Temperature: 21-25 °C. Food: vegetable and fruit, birch-, beech- and oak leaves, dead wood, calcium, protein. The nimphs inhabit snags buried in the ground. The imagos spend most of the time outside the ground on snags. They have wings, but fly rarely. An escapee is easily caught by a strong light source.

Temperature: 22-25 °C. Food: vegetable and fruit, birch-, beech- and oak leaves, dead wood, calcium, protein. This kind is often found as Therea petiveriana (Linnaeus, 1758), but presumably, there is a difference in size between them and a slight difference in the shape of the hind wings. Supposedly only Therea bernhardti
is found in collections. Moreover, one of the specimens of Therea petiveriana (Linnaeus, 1758) is kept at the Natural History Museum, London.
