    Hi all

    two of my frogspawn heads are not expanding.
    It recently fell but it was just for a minute.
    now it just stays small and dark green.
    can I just dip it in an iodine solution and will it work?

    thx

    the one head for a while now could be that it got hurt because it is at the base and I had to place it.
    The other one since last week when it fell.

    that looks fine.
    If its not as open as it used to be it could be because it got a bit damaged when it fell over. Just watch it closely and check that the tissue doesnt start receeding.

    I think it got hurt as well, so two heads tenticles are still there but do not expand like in the pic.

    Will an iodine dip work?

    can you post a pic of the frpgspawn after the fall?

    iodine dip will help prevent infection.
