    I have a 6 inch female and a recently molted pen-ulimate male and was curious if anyone here has had first hand experience with pairing and sac production. Apparently the latter is what troubles people the most if the female is not cycled properly, but specifics on doing so seem to be lacking. Any input would be appreciated!

    There's a scientific paper on their breeding among other things if I recall correctly.

    Do you have a link or something of the sort? I can’t seem to find any papers on the topic.

    Bumping this in hopes of someone sharing their secrets with this species. Male is getting close to molting.

    The Grammostola Iheringi is terribly hard to mate you should have been doing research way before this point if you wanted to mate them

    I can't find anything specific for this species but that article includes their observation on G. iheringi and others. Their laboratory temperatures are listed by month in one of their graphs. As for egg sacs, they comment that most of theirs were eaten or abandoned. Perhaps if you get a sac, you should "pull it." They do comment that in their field observations, males were active in October, so presumably, they mate, then she chills for the winter and makes the sac in the spring. There are articles on 'winterizing' Brachypelma hamorii (smithi) you could reference for that.
