    At birth, they are 1i, within' a couple of weeks, they will start molting and become 2i, they leave mom shortly after usually. After that, it really depends on how you feed them, what they are, and I personally could estimate, but it really doesn't matter. You should try to watch for signals of up coming molt if you are worried about it, but in early instars, they need lots of humidity, so other than taking food out if they don't eat it in 24 hours or so, you should be good. I will be replying to your last thread shortly with my thoughts on that. :)

    I suggest you browse the whole forum first just to familiarize then ask questions later. This will ensure that you will be able to understand some of the terms commonly used here.
