Nylanderia spp. doubts

Hey guys! I have some questions on this ant spp. More concretely, NYLANDERIA FULVA spp.

So... let´s go with the questions!:

1. How often and how much should i water their nest in an OMNI NEST and how often and how much should i water their nest with a HYBRID NEST?

2. Is this a good SPP. for STARTERS?

3. They have fast-growing colonies such as the SOLENOPSIS ones?

I await your response,
Shadow Ants.

From what I know they're a small worker sized colony which grows reasonably fast and large. A colony like this can be quite tricky to look after if you are just getting into ant keeping.
