I was wondering if a suitable second T to get is an Lasiodora Parahybana, i am not going to handle it and i think i should be ok,, just wondering what you guys think, like do i have to mist everyday and keep high humidity
No, you don't need to - just let the water dish overflow a bit when you refill, so that a small part of the substrate gets moist. mine will occasionally hover over that moist area, but most often she's on the dry side of the tank.
My second T was an LP. It was tiny when I got it, last October. It is now around 6" and doing fine with just a water dish that's overflowed every now and then and just a few fake plants and a coconut hide. A great, hardy, and gigantic tarantula. Good choice. Just watch out for the u-hairs.
I am getting a 2.5 inch LP in a few days, it's actually gonna be my first T. I've kept an enclosure ready now for 2 weeks to experiment with temp and humidity. I have read that they should be kept at 70F and 70% humidity. I kept a space heater in the room and that kept the temp at a constant 75 but the humidity wouldn't rise above 30% no matter how much I overflowed the water dish, I even covered most of the top of the enclosure with seram wrap, and still no good. I decided to turn the space heater off and see what happens, the humidity now stays at a constant 70% but the temp is 65F. This time of year my house doesn't get any warmer than that. Any advice will be greatly appreciated! Thanks
