Another good post I want to add to my 'files'.
[QUOTE=Talkenlate04;1029616]Ok, where to begin............ This I guess will be my formal write up for breeding the species Brachypelma Smithi. Everything I write below is based off my experience. The methods used below are what I have found to work the best over the years, and I want to stress I am not saying other methods are wrong, this is just a write up of what I do. My success within this genus speaks for itself, so I don’t really
Probably the best breeding report I have ever seen, and again, something to keep for my personal use in the future.
[QUOTE=Hobo;1932773][SIZE=5][B][U]Breeding attempt successful.[/U][/B][/SIZE]
Both male and female were subjected to seasonal changes. In addition to the natural temperature and daylight fluctuations, both individuals were subjected to a humid spring and early summer, and a more dry late summer, fall/winter
Again, for my own personal reference.

My Brothers' vinegaroon had recently molted into a mature male after being in the molting chamber
almost 5 months but date of said molt is still unknown. I had purchased an adult female vinegaroon back in september hoping
to breed it.
moment of truth
time was around 7:00 pm pacific
mating behavior at first was seen
This post made me LOL.
[QUOTE=Boyd Blizard;1929911]Yea that's what everyonenis saying but he was my first T. I purchased him in November of last year and he was about the size of a medium size cricket. I think that I just got lucky with him, and I KNOW that I fed him a LOT. ON THIS LAST MOULT HE WENT FROM ABOUT 7 to 9 inch legspan Oops sorry bout the caps. All who have seen him who know about T's say that he is a beast. Late.[/QUOTE]
Sorry bout the caps. :D
Again, for my personal reference:
i´m keeping my specimen in tall deli-cups (0,4L), peat-moss as substrate, some twigs to climb on, that´s it.
Humidity is around some 70%, temperatures around 25° C, however, they can easily tolerate temps in the 30° C, too, as i found out over the last weeks...
Really easy to care for so far. Just since yesterday first specimen started to molt to 3. instar...
