Hi,

i don't think that there are many species of this genus in the hobby, but it would be really nice to see some pics if anybody has...

Adult female of the most common species in captivity, Plesiopelma longisternale:

Plesiopelma sp. "Bolivia"

I acquired these spiders from an import in November 2008, and they were about 1/4". Two and a half years later, they are about a half inch.:rolleyes: Slowest growing genus EVER. I hope to breed them one day if I live long enough.

Hahahaha
I thought mine was the only one.
Mine has grown about 1/4" in the last 2 years.
Do you know what size these guys reach?

Hopefully they are full grown at 1 inch, but im doubtful haha. My guess is 4-5 inches, but thats a guess based on nothing.

That's actually pretty amusing, Tom. What's the size progress on it now, would you happen to know?
