    I found one of these. So crazy!! I have a Magicicadi. What should I do with her? I was digging up a flower bed and found some amazing Inkcap Mushrooms and I didn’t really see where she came out of. I put her in a bowl with some of her native soil and mushroom buddies. Help? Thanks.

      Cool! Dig a hole in the ground near the roots of a shrub or tree, put it near the roots and cover it back up.
