    If your temps are high it should grow reletively quickly if it is cold it wil grow slower. Males supposedly grow faster than females. More food/less food can also increase/decrease growthrates. Then there are other less obviouse factors that may or may not affect growth like stress.

    Unfortunatly I doubt if anyone will really be avle to give a good answer to your question...

    Mainly depends on temps, feeding frequency, and the individual. They're generally fast growers.

    As others have said... it all comes down to the temp, humidity, feeding schedule and of course the T itself (male vs female).

    Avicularia pinktoe...that's not really helpful. Most 'pinktoes' are Avicularia, but not all. For the correct name we need the second part as well, like this: Avicularia avicularia, or Avicularia metallica. It would be helpful to mention that. ;)

    Yeah sorry. It's Avicularia Avicularia. I thought the scientific name of that specific individuals were only called pinktoe

    "Pinktoe" is a generic term that applies to several Avicularia species (and also to Caribena versicolor, which used to be Avicularia versicolor). :cool:

    Growth depends upon many factors. No one can tell you how fast your T will grow w/the information you provided.

  11. Here's how mine went. Just to give you a vague idea because again, temp and feeding schedule really dictate "how fast."
    Acquired 1/17/17 at about 3 in. dls.
    Molted 2/1/17
    Molted 5/10/17
    Molted 7/25/17 confirmed female
    Molted 11/21/17... most recent. They're moderately fast growers in my opinion.
