Asu1776 I like the setup a lot! I've always wanted to set up a riparium as well housing some orchid praying mantises.

I looked up some videos about your spider on youtube and the first one that came up was it biting someone. Haha. Have you tried to handle it?

Those are special plants. I spent a lot of time researching them and looking for them. They are true miniature palms that stay small and grow slow. Here are the ones that I have in there.
  • Pinanga disticha
  • Licuala dasyanthe
  • Licuala triphylla
  • Licuala malejana
  • Dypsis minuta
  • Dypsis poivreana

Thanks so much. This spider is really sweet and mellow. I built the wood feature with manzanita branches attached to a plast plate with stainless steel screws.

hydrophyte Thanks. She had those real bright colors for a couple of weeks after she molted. Now she is more drab. I hope that she will molt again soon.

hydrophyte Look! I have update photo from the other night. If you look real close you will see the spider.



I have changed the planting a little bit more. The plants in this setup are awesome. This terrarium is probably my favorite project that I have made. I spend a couple of minutes staring into it every day.

hydrophyte I cleaned up this setup last night and got a couple of quick photos. I have changed the planting again and now it is almost all mini collector palms in there.

This is one of my favorite setups that I have ever made. It is so simple, but just perfect. I spend a couple of minutes every day looking in there. I like the spider a lot too. If you look you can see her pink toes over on the right.

Aquaticus My wife would kill me for setting something up like this. The kids would love it, though!

Beautiful and fascinating
Avicularia spp. tarantulas are usually quite mellow and docile. I can reach in there and pet this spider like a puppy.

I have had them get loose in there a few times, but it is better to have the spider get them right away. Roaches can chew on the plants and damage them.
