    I think you're talking about instars, and 6i to 7i could take a while. At 6i, they are pretty much full grown or close to it. Maybe a year or two? Never owned P. dictator, but would think that they are decently slow growing. I'd probably say within the next year to year + is when it will molt to 7i, but honestly it depends on a lot of things. Your feeding schedule, its habits, and your husbandry all can affect when an inverts molts. It may be a year or two before your scorp molts. If you want it to go faster, just feed as much as it can if you don't already. Will help it to grow, but not sure how effective that is for older specimen. Usually works for scorplings, but yours will still probably take quite a bit ;)
