    I'll have to remember that when I try with my 2 females next year, I'll make the spider shed a silent zone (no talking except in whispers) LOL

    cheers Peter although not out of the woods yet, i had 2 balfouri sacs last year at this time and lost both (one was my own fault, apparently spiders dont like hammer drills being used in the same room during this period :/ )

    The female a juvenile dubia roach every one to two weeks prior to mating. She has never been a big eater

    Tank conditions and temperatures after mating
    Temperatures around 27C with humidity around 80-85%, raised to this by soaking the substrate to saturation and then no more water added or given up until the eggsac was laid

    1 juvenile Dubia cockroach per week for around 8 weeks
