    Too many environmental factors involved in growth rates to pin it down. Could be as little as 2-3 years, could be as long as 6 years.

    At 77 degrees during the day, 70 to 72 at night, with medium range humidity, 2.5 inches of substrate and fed 2 to 3 times a week, I had an 1/2" sling to 1" in about 2 months.

    I keep mine at around 70F, feed them whenever I remember and after a couple of months shy of 8 years since they hatched they are at around 4" legspan.
