Rytidoponera Queens not laying

Hey, so i have two rytidoponera metalica queens right now and they both don't seem to be laying, they are inside a testube I've set up for semi-claustral queens and I feed them some honey every 3 days and they don't seem to want to lay. all they do is sit on the cotton not do anything. Im not too worried but its been about a 3 weeks.
Queens only:
Myrmecia Pilosula (6 larvae, 1 pupae)

Early Stage Nests:
x1 Anonychromyrma (15-20 workers)
