    Depends on how often it get's fed, the temps, and humidity. All of these things will effect the growth rate of the T. Most likely it'll be a 1-2 years..

    Quick update, feed her again last night a small 1/4" cricket with a tong/tweezer and "ALEX" rushed the tweezers like a bullet for that cricket

    Yes, the baby versi now has a name "ALEX", and yep I picked a unisex name

    She comes out of her web at night so I will try to get a pic around Midnight tonight or tomorrow night.

    Alex enjoying free rein to go where as do as it pleases.

    Time for a little update and feeding 7-28-10

    Alex is doing great, webbing up a little thicker and very sociable (for a T).
    Alex comes out every evening to see whats going on and look for food or water, I mist just outside her web every evening, she seems to like it.

    But on with the feeding:




    Now, anyone that can feed and take a pic at the same time and get better pic's, feel free to come over and try, she is fast as hell

    She grabbed that cricket and dragged it with the tweezers back into her hole before I could release the darn tweezers , lol

    So, I decided to clean out the greenhouse today (aka G-5) and while ripping out more purple Wandering Jew , stuff is like a weed! Well anyways hidden in the Wandering Jew mess see below:



    I found this: Alex's first molt she must have climbed down here and molted while she was on her 2 week safari
