I just bought a 5 in female phormictopus platus last week . I found a small caresheet on the humidity and the terrain, but i was wondering if anyone had any other info on this species i've scoured the net and found very little .. all I know is that she is very moody ... any info would be very helpful thanks;P

P. platus is a very bogus name in the trade... for reasons I outline HERE.

I keep them in a moist substrate and feed them once a week. I own P platus, P cancirades and P auratus (sorry for my spelling) btw :).

Ok thank you so much for your help... and also to the above response what youre saying is that it could actually be another species of tarantula? that is what the dealer sold it under and every picture i have come across looks like the T I have, i will definitely look under P auratus now as well though. thanks a lot to both of you really appreciate it
