Hi,
I have several spiderlings of Nephila edulis. They are in transparent plastic containers for now. But when they grow larger i will move them in a warm room, but problem might be humidity. I measured it and it's 50 - 60%. Is this enough for succesfull molting. What if i spray the web and spiders once a day or more.

Will spiders do fine?

Wow! Do You have pics of the female? I think You can place a bowl with the water in the warm point of the room, so the humidity should rise a bit.
Regards, Matthew.

nice looking spiders, i love this genus, but wasn't familiar with the species at all.

Sorry for misleading you all, but this is not an adult male. I found that yesterday. It molted again. The palps are much thiner now.
