    So an eighth moth hatched and the seventh moth died, the eighth moth had a piece of it's cocoon stuck on it's proboscis and it was keeping the moth from doing anything, I obviously helped get it off but I realized the importance of keeping the pupae somewhat wet, I usually spray the pupae two passes three times a day but given that the two recent hatches had problems I'm just gonna up the times I spray them. People say that paper towels are good for pupae but it dries quicker than substrate so I recommend to use sub over paper.
