Anyone know at roughly what size P.Ornata and P.Regalis males will reach maturity??I know...it's a pretty "generalized" question.
I have 1 male Regalis that I suspect will reach maturity next molt,he is a solid 5.5" now
These are the first pokies I have raised from slings so I'm not sure what to basically expect in this area.

Thank you in advance !!

I have had a few Regalis MM and they seem to mature at 5.5-6.5, I did have one male that was a beast he was a tad over 7" and very leggy.
I have never had a MM Ornata though. I have a few sub adult males right now at 4.5+ so I am curious what the answer is to that as well.

I too had a regalis mature at about 6.5. A lot depends on how you feed. For instance, I breed primarily T. blondi and my males are always larger than ones I get on breeding loan. The answer to your question: depends.

hmmm...so the 6 - 7" mark seems to be a general "MM" size??
There are a bunch of variables that could play into it I'm sure.

Guess it's just a waiting game no matter what lol.
