I've got a P. ornata female with a 5 inch legspan and a very horny mature male P. ornata with a 6 inch legspan. (For some reason Pokie males tend to max out at 6-7 inches in my home-my rufilata matured at about 6.5 inches and my ornata matured at 6 inches). I know the 5 incher is a bit small. However, I have a great new enclosure that I'd like to put them in (Perfect for a communal setup 50 cm tall, 40 cm deep and 17 cm wide with a nice bark tube with several exits and entrances that I made for them). I even made lots of 1mm ventilation holes (on the top, upper sides and lower front for cross ventilation) in case of babies. Here's my question, it's a two parter. Do you think she's too small to breed? If she is too small to breed, what are the chances of them living communally without killing each other?

P. ornata is NOT a communal species.
Regalis, Faciata, subfusca all do fine like this.

Not ornata.
