Deze soort is parthenogenetisch in cultuur. Dit betekent dat in gevangenschap er alleen vrouwtjes zijn, en de eitjes die zij leggen komen toch uit zonder dat er een mannetje is geweest. Uit die eitjes komen ook weer alleen vrouwtjes.
Als de vrouwtjes volwassen zijn, zullen ze eitjes gaan leggen. De eitjes zijn rond en bruin en hebben een klein dopje er op waar het nimfje later uit zal komen. Ze gooien ze gewoon op de grond. De eitjes komen na een paar maanden uit.
