Yes, from my experience, these are like "miniature Rosies". They max out at around 3 inches, and look/act a lot like G rosea. Care should be basically the same, as well.

Sounds good to me. I've got 3 slings and not much room. I'm hoping to be gainfully employed and in a house of my own by the time some of these guys get big.

It's one of the reasons I've started to try and concentrate more on 6" and below Ts. My shelves are beyond packed already :)

i have one!

it has a big butt. My lil sling is ummmm 1/4 inch? half inch, maybee. Very active lil critter, it goes around and around the vial for long periods of time. eats well. I havent had any problems with it. It even survived the trauma I put it through the other day when I sent its vial spiraling across the shelf on accident.
I have heard how slow they grow, so I don't plan on needing more space for it anytime soon...
