I breed them when I was 7 so it is not hard.lol get about 100 or more get a trash can put potting soil/no fertilizers and keep it moist/damp NOT WET and put bits of vegetable scraps in the bucket and I had at least 2000 in a baby pool that I bred.lol and make sure that it has a lid but screen or something for good ventilation and you do not have to have a lid but I prefer to and make sure that is does not rain in the bucket so put it in your garage or under a over hang.

Umm I would say max 4 months depending on what you start out with I would say the more you start out with the quicker you will get them breeding.
