Cultures of Mononchoides potohikus have been maintained on agar plates with a bacterium (Bacillus cereus var. mycoides). Also M. potohikus has been found to be a facultative predator, preying on a wide range of nematode species. The predation rate of females is independent of the prey species, the presence of old tracks of the prey species, and the presence of a bacterial film. Predation rate is not affected by satiation but is dependent on prey density and is affected by the presence of water on the agar plate. The predation rate of the apparently non-functional males is significantly greater than that of females.
