Culture maintenance

Once you receive delivery of your new culture, all you have to do is place it somewhere at room temperature (20 to 22 Celsius). You won't have to wait long for the flies to pupate and emerge as adults. The time period for the culture to develop, pupate and adults to emerge may vary depend upon the developmental stage of the culture and the ambient temperature. Generally D. hydei (large flies) take about 3 weeks and D. melanogaster (small flies) take about 2 weeks to complete their life stages (from egg to adult fly) at 20 to 24 Celsius.
