Rehoused GBB and now it's shy

Upgraded our GBB's housing after 6 molts in the 14 months we've had her, from 3/4" sling to now about 2-1/2" leg span, and it's been hiding ever since.

The first day in the new enclosure it started webbing on the branches but since then it has retreated into a coconut shell hide I put in there and blocked the entrance with webbing and substrate.

My gut is to leave it alone, what good can I do digging it out, but I wonder how long it will hide in there, or if it's possibly molting in there and will dig itself out when it's ready.

What say ye other GBB keepers?
