A very pretty color mix of body and hairs. What kind of "greenery" is that?

Just the regular green dried moss in a bale. You can pick the stuff up at most pet shops for decor.

The A. henzti is about 2" now. Both of mine have molted within 24 hours from each other.

I have one boy and one girl.

I thought that's what it was.

Have you used it in a tank for a decent amount of time? How does it hold up? Any change after wetting it?

Sorry for all the questions, but this stuff looks like a great alternative to "natural" moss, etc.

As far as temperment...the two of Aphonopelma henzti that I have are calm as ever. No bite, no kick!

I have the Aphonopelma henzti on my list for the next show. I will be buying all the Aphonopelma henzti on the table as I do with more T's that are some of my fav's.

The moss used does not hold to water that well. I would say a month or two at most before it looks discolored. I keep a bale on hand to grab some out of when I need to replace it.

The pic was taken a day after the molt. These two below were from today.

Here's updated pics of the Aphonopelma henzti today:
