I had a T. Blondi that grew extremely fast. Now I have a Chaco Golden, and I heard they are slow growers.

Just wondering, out of curiosity what the fastest growing, large T. is.

My l. parahybana and n. coloratovillosus have been my fastest growers on a moderate diet. Though, I'm sure others can add more to the list. :D

Arboreal species -> Poecilotheria
Terrestrial -> Lasiodora

I don't know if these two mentioned species are the fastest among others, but, i keep both species and they are the fastest growing T's in my collection.

Heterothele females can reach sexual maturity in give or take 12 months. they're all small species to begin with, but they mature quite quickly. there are other species, genre, that grow very quickly. and a lot of factors affect how quickly any animal grows. if you search the forums here you'll get a good idea of growth rates and things that might directly affect them.

Pokies are very fast growing even as tiny slings. Lasiodora start off a bit small and slow upto the 1" mark then take off like crazy!

This, in my experience also.
