The gap between molts can vary wildly based on temperatures and feeding.

So I'd say it's going to molt shortly after it looks really really fat.

You'll need some patience in this hobby. It took my first emp over a year to molt and he was ~3rd instar, IIRC Smile

Somehow when I got my B. jacksoni and L. quinquestratus in quantities of five, there was a "runt" in each species which took 1-2 months extra to molt even though they were from the same brood. Well... The LQ "runt" hasn't molted yet, but he's noticabely smaller than the other four.
