There are ways that you can set this sp. up in a critter keeper. You can always tape half of the container to hold in humidity. Misting them once or twice a week is fine. They can be burrowers but I've found with mine it has always made tunnels with it's webbing and never really burrowed at all.I dont recommend putting a humid burrower like that in a kritter keeper. The kk will not keep it humid enough. A plastic sterlite/tupperware box is the way to go. Give it deep/slightly moist substrate. Dont forget to drill holes around the sides.
I assume you are getting a sling? If so just house in a vial with deep substrate. What I wrote above is for adults.
I raised a sling to adulthood in just over 2 years (female) so I wouldn't say that these are particularly slow growing compared to say, Selenotypus, Heteroscodra, Grammostola etc.Slowwwwwwwwww growers. Mine was a tiny sling when I got her and it took her pretty much 2 years to make it to the 4" mark. Which I would rather them grow slow then fast. Power feeding a T is NOT good.
And its also a waste of time. Misting evaporates fast and will not soak up the substrate. You are far ahead just pouring water directly on the substrate. After keeping several tropical arachnids over the past few years I have learned that is the best way to go, believe meMisting them once or twice a week is fine. .
When I mist this T I do make sure that the substrate is more moist then I would normally do....but I don't soak it. I must be doing something right when it comes to T's that need more humidity then others cause they are all very healthy.And its also a waste of time.

a turkey fluid distributor apparatusA turkey baster, you know, a tube with a rubber 'ball' on the end, like suck up gravy and squirt it over stuff?
I'm sure there's some form of technical word to describe it.
He plainly said, Basser...I've never heard of one, but I HAVE heard of a Turkey Baster, now we're getting somewhere! Those are too big in my opinion, and would seemingly gush too much water out, wheras a syringe/needle is much more controllable.What If Ijust Used A Turkey Basser?? Lol ... Im Serious! Lol
