    What once was lost, now is found

    As some of you may know I lost an Avic Versicolor sling a few weeks ago but was not worried or concerned because all the "T'" enclosures are within my walk-in greenhouse. So I figured he/she would make a home somewhere and one day I would discover his/hers hiding place.

    Well that day has arrived at the very top of the Nepenthes vine and on the other side of the greenhouse



    The little sling seems happy here in its new fancy web, So I just feed a little cricket, gave a little mist of water and let him/her be
    No I do not plan on locking her up again , lol Not for now anyways

    That's AWESOME. "Oh, you escaped from your home? Okay, have an even bigger one!" And that you're letting him have a happy life catching the insects that your plants don't.

    Cool a free range T - just be sure to watch your step!
    The little frogs who sneak into the orchid shop greenhouse seem to get squished quite often.

    IIRC you said you had gotten two slings. It will be interesting to see how fast the growth rate is on the caged VS uncaged. My only concern is if your GH is an unheated one, I would imagine even in GA it could get too cold for a tropical spider if the GH isn't heated.

    I'd be so scared of it wandering off and finding a new home again though..

    No worries about the tempature, the greenhouse has heating and cooling:

    Temp Summer: Days 88-92f, 65% rh Nights 72-76, 80+ Rh

    Temp Winter: Days 82-84, 75% Rh Nights 68-70, 80+ Rh

    These can be adjusted I just prefer to keep them here for the purpose of the electric bill

    That's ok, the little guy would show up again somewhere else, the greenhouse is pretty sealed up and screens cover all the vents.

    Thanks Mass, I will try to not loose him again lol no promises

    So - how long until you've got a full-size, free-ranging T welcoming you into your greenhouse each day?

    I can see the sign on your door warning thieves ......
    All the best,
