How fast do these beasts grow? Mine seems to molt every month and a half or so but it is only a spiderling. Are they as fast as L parahybana?

I got an h. maculata as a freebie a year or two ago, it is so reclusive that I cannot really tell you the molt dates or even how many times it has molted. it is about 4" legspan now, what is adult size on these guys? I can't even get the molts because the molts are behind some cork bark that is siliconed to the glass.
