2 days after discovering the eggsack...i suddenly have spiderlings!
she must've been sat on it for a while, but naturelly i didn't bother her...til i thought it had been a bit long for her to be sealed in. didn't even occur to me to think the male who co-habitted with her from sling had visited her! d'oh! and now he's off with Mary, so hopefully they'll be more to come!:D

anyways, i couldn't be more pleased! no idea on numbers yet, i don't really want to disturb them if it's avoidable, at least til they start dispersing.
all i can say is it was a good size sac compared to the female. maybe just over half an inch in diameter, going by my dodgy memory.

i have potted 100 spiderlings...not including the one death so far. think a few more lurking but i won't stress about them til i can fetch them out easily.
i've heard rumours this species double clutches, which could explain why i've got so many...was expecting roughly 30 per sac, and there were at least two sacs.
