I would of thought all species from Poecilotheria would grow at roughly the same sort of speeds. And I believe Poecolotheia is a fairly fast growing genus of T (is jumping around in my head for some reason).Hi guys,
Can anyone give me a rough growth rate for a P.metallica please?
Also, how often should a sling of this species be moulting (approximately)?
Cheers in advance...
depends upon the metabolic rate of the individual spider...that plus temp, humidity, amount of food you are giving it
just like anything else there are so many things that can and will affect the growth rate
Good to see a sensible reply, That females grow slower comment had me laughing but glad to see you hit the nail on the head. Definately is dependant on the individual. My experience with this species tells me your possibly not feeding the sling well enough or not keeping it at the right temp. Tbh id expect the growth rate you have got to be that of an ill spider. At that size the growth rate should have been insane as the pokies are indeed one of the faster growing species and they really dont stay small for long.
