This is one of the set-ups I used....

Mandarins loved for me to leave live fuzzies or hoppers overnight in a feeding jug, that normally held water. They also loved to have the cage bedding misted before feeding. Sometimes they at f/t, but not always.

I remember reading an article by Gillingham just before getting into Mandarins in the early days. He was the first to breed them, if I remember correctly. I did get a clutch myself eventually. Very secretive snakes. They did like lots of props, bedding, and some tubing.
