Dear god really? Thats stupid slow....... really? Thats slow? I have two slings right now.... and they are at not even 1/2 inch. Uggg I hope they are faster growing then the 1/2 g rosea sling I have had for almost a year that has done nadda. That thing is a slug its in no hurry to do anything fast. :8oI'm in the same boat. Has not eaten in 3 months and not molted in 8 months. She is about an inch and I have had her for 2 years.
With smithi I have not had one complaint about the growth rate. I have been able to get slings to 5+ inches or more in a few years.i'm not looking forward to my brachys growth rate. like i mentioned earlier my b. emilia is not even 1" and i have had it for about a year. it was about 1/4" when i received it. my b. smithi, ugghhh, 1/4" now and am dreading the slow growth. but it'll be worth it in the end.
Lets put it this way. Brachys aren't quite as slow as Grammostola, but they are still S-L-O-W. I have a 3 year old rosehair sling that is still only about an inch. It has moulted twice in the time that I have had it and it didn't really grow enough to be seen with either moult.Dear god really? Thats stupid slow....... really? Thats slow?

*Bump*....some advice needed here.It has been said that raising temps can induce. How long do these elevated temps need to be sustained? A few months back we had a warm snap that kept daytime ambient up at over 90 degrees for a good two weeks. This rise in temps did not convince my dumb old G. aureostriata to shed. It's now as good as four years since I've had her, and no molts to date. Would raising humidity by covering a portion of the mesh lid on her tank perhaps change her mind? It's been a good three months since she ate, but that's because she seldom comes out of her cave.....even for water. I'm not one to disturb them unless the situation becomes critical, which I don't believe it is.
