Hm, that's wierd. Oh well I'm sure there is an explanation hidden somewhere.well, mine gets two crix of appropriate size once week. so i don't see why yours should grow fast and mine so slow. :wall: honestly, those two are the slowest growing ts i own! even my bonnetina rudloffi, though those are notoriously slow growers, molts more often. and she gets less food as well.
Ah yeah see, I powerfeed thats why. So all in all, it really depends on how much you feed it and what temps you keep it at. Apparently on a normal diet they grow slow...In my experience, these things are incredibly slow growing...
Got some as 1cm slings last june, they are 2.5cm legspan now. That's most likely 3 molts, possibly 4 as I may have missed one since they web up so much.
that's off 1x cricket per week.
Some Brachys aren't too slow growing. B.vagans isn't for sure. I had a sling go from .5" to 3.5" in around 9 months.Ya i don't powerfeed these guys (but i do powerfeed others for sure).
I have Brachypelmas that I feed at the same frequency that grow much much faster, though! (and most people consider brachy's slow...even though I got a 1.5yr old female vagans sittin at the 4.5" mark, but anyway).
