It can take up to 2 months for them to hatch. Just keep them warm.

Unless you have a lot of insect pests to feed the mantids when they hatch, they will cannibalize themselves before you know it. There are other beneficial predators that work more effectively than mantids although none as visible and interesting to watch.
