Brussels are back for Christmas lol

What you feed, where you get it from, basically we will build up a comrehensive list of suitable plants to feed Leaf Cutters. Also in temperate countries, what do you feed them in the Winter?

Brussels Sprouts are a great staple diet. The good thing about them is if you are going away you can give your colony some and the ants are happy for a good few days.
Buy them loose, not the packet ones that have been trimmed. They prefer the green outer to the white inner.
