Depends on the individual specimen and the conditions. It is likely to grow quickest with good humidity, temperatures and regular food (however, dont feed it too often)

Again, you can't say really it depends on the individual.

You know how some people are bigger than others of the same age, well its the same principal with all animals. Some will just grow quicker and some will grow slower, so there is no telling how fast it will grow.
You can only encourage it to grow quicker by giving it the best conditions.

An instar is the life stage of a scorpion. They will molt (shed their exoskeleton in order to grow) 5 times in their lifetime if they are male and 6 if they are female.

When they are born, they are called 1st instar or 1i when they molt for the first time, they will become 2nd instar, when they molt for the second time, they will become 3rd instar and so on and so forth. Until they reach maturity in which they will not grow any more and their telson will turn red/brown instead of a yellow/creamy colour.

Females go up to 7i
Males go up to 6i

This is why more often than not in adult scorpions, females are larger than males.

Hope this helps Smile
