I posted a little while back about setting up my jumping spider P.regalis enclosure, all good, got some good tips! Thanks people

More an observation than a worry but my spider won't use it's cork bark or leaves, it only goes on the side of the he jar, it will jump into prey flies sitting on the bark but will jump back to the plastic side.

Is this a stress response from being in a new enclosure?
Could I need to rinse wash the "ornaments" cos the.spider knows something I don't?
Or is it just a spider being a spider??

I'm slowly learning not to be super worried but one tends to over worry when starting! Haha

Thanks x

Completely normal. Mine have similar behavior. It never hurts to clean everything carefully, however.
