Brachypelmas are slow growers and long livers, my guess is about 5 years or maybe 6 or so years, give or take a bit. I have a 9 year old B.smithi and I'm pretty sure she is mature.

Actually, There are pleanty of exceptions to the rules even in a genus that grows slowly, I have seen in many cases that B boehmei grows extreamly faster than its other Brachypelma cousins. My female took 2.5 years to get to a size were she wanted to breed.( I got her when she was 1.5"and she was feed at a normal pace). Just some food for thought.

Sincerely,
