I'm the opposite, I'm always excited to come back to my room after I've gone on vacation/left town for a bit because usually somebody has molted or rearranged the enclosure.
Me too. Infact iv got a job lined up where ill be out of town 3-5 days at a time sometimes. And the thought of coming back to find random molts or that someones in super heavy premolt or has moved everything or made webs...

But you also gota look who your talkin to...

No harm in having the next 4 houses ready and setup for a my P. regalis slings right? I don't wanna be the guy putting it off.... Get that ish over with.

Until I doscover which of my patterned arboreals and which L.p. is biggest and on display most to make me by nice display enclosures, everybody else gets...... PLASTIC BINS WITH HOLES FROM THE STORE!!!! Yaya!

Ever feel like a tarantula slum lord lol. I have one enclosure with a bit of a patch on the top. Nothing at risk for the T. But it looks kinda ghetto. Dpllar store Tupperware. Get what you pay for. Works well though and inside is top notch for him. :)

I'm almost 23 but I am an old soul on the inside, besides all you can do is get better, no one has kept tarantulas and become worse at it as they've gained experience.

...can't keep pothos in a pot

...cringe when you hear the word "exterminator"

...feel you can differentiate anthropomorphism from the fact that you know your avic just wants to be held

...soften the blow by explaining to your new friend that what you really have are "land bettas"

...see things from your cat's point of view to stay ahead of them

...chase away tarantula hawks from the backyard where you your compost is

...become an extrovert when someone else says, "I have a tarantula."

I usually annihilate a pothos the second I get it home. Hopefully, with my new bush of the jungle plant, and some peat moss substrate that a 10+ year T keeper recommended, I should be in the green. :)

The "land betta" reference you made was actually pretty good. What I meant by it was that they are usually kept alone because they can be aggressive with each other and you really shouldn't pet them. ;)

realy? hmm..i have one clipping in a rosea [who loves moisture dont judge me lol] and only 1 is dieing [well rly withering i guess] because every day i need to water iv positioned it funny and if i watered that one it would flow into the hide where she loves to sit. i ddint plan thatone out well XD maybe your coco has a high salt level?? no clue 3 home plants are in pure coco, one in a coco, water crystal mix at a friends [indoor their heats always running in that house] and only complaint iv had is "it doesnt grow much" maybe iv just got a green thumb with plants. XD

haha! touche indeed, and a planted community sorority at that ;P sounds like a time bomb to those unfamiliar, but its been running for over a 18months never more then a fin nip after the first month :)

Unless you bring me tarantulas, geckos, or snakes. Then you may stay.
