My G.pulchra spiderling molted a week after it stopped eating, and my A.geniculata stopped eating when its abdomen turned black and waited at least 10 days beofre it molted. Be patient, blondi's are nutorious for fasting for a long time before molting. I'd expect it to happen within a month for sure, probabaly a couple of weeks. Don't feed it or anything, and make sure all food is out of the cage but make sure a full clean waterdish is always available.

I'm not entirely sure. I think it largely depends on the size of your blondi. After my blondi's first molt (2" before moult), it's abdomen was black for almost exactly a week before it molted. The second time I saw it molt, it's abdomen was black for not quite two weeks (a week and five days, approximately).

My smaller blondi has molted 3 times under my care... the first 2 times it ate right up until it molted. The 3rd time it fasted for about a week prior to the molt.

My large ones never stop eating and have not yet molted under my care so I am anxiously awaiting it to see how large my female gets (she is about 8 or 9 inches right now)
