Not much of an expert myself, hopefully someone with more experience will be along shortly with a more informed reply. Since you bought them so small, I'd guess that they'd be primed to do some moulting fairly quickly and relatively frequently. Have you inspected any of the white forms? When you hold them in your fingers, do they feel like mere exoskeletons or do they still have organs, etc. inside?
