This girl built all the way to the top. She's due for a rehouse and I almost hate to destroy all her hard work. And yes, the enclosure is on the stove, no I don't keep it there.lol. The lighting is just better there.

More pipecleaner :lol: :rofl: :lol: I'm sure you'll find a nice lady for him if he is male. Mine's still only an inch and has not molted for me yet, and I've had it since mid Feb. We can't handle more than 72° in the house though.

Thanks for that, I had been a tad worried :) I just watered it and there was barely any reaction, so maybe we have pre molt finally!

Yeah! My whhole collection sits at like thhe 68-72 degree range most the time and I have never had any problems! Just may not be the superb growth rates, but I havent found it all that slow either

Part of the Web Tube from my still small (~3") Cyriopagopus sp. Hati Hati.
Unfortunately I have to destroy it soon, since she needs a rehouse to a bigger (final) enclosure.

Exactly what we like to keep it at too and with the first few I never worried too much because growth rate seemed to be on par with what I expected, but after acquiring the psalmos and second versi I am pretty diligent about insisting it gets no lower than that. I could always move some of them upstairs for a while if I feel they need more heat, though I haven't had to yet.

Jumanji, my juvenile female S. claceatum, built this within a week after I rehoused her in her new enclosure. IMG_20210509_151000552.jpg
