Id say you'd care for it like any hets or pandinus sp. Moderate humid to medium high humid and 20~30 C.

Its parthenogenic so expect babies when it gets adult Smile

humidity:high humidity 80-90% humidity
feeding: chopped mealworm, pinhead crickets, nymph lateralis.
put few bark wood for hiding. they are easy and hardy scorps.
substrate: cocopeat, or cocopeat mix with potting soil.
they are communal species, just make sure they got enough food to avoid cannibalism.

liocheles & tlb_05 have given you good replies there Smile
You may wish to read about more by on the Liocheles australasiae breeding report by LXDN79.

Btw, you might have forgotten about your self-intro.

Do give others a chance to know you and it'll also bring better response to your threads Smile

That is one way of doing it but it can get kinda messy after a while if there's any chalk in your water....and then you've got the daily disturbance factor.
Another way would be to create a false bottom setup where you poured water directly down a tube leading to a gravel layer at the bottom of the enclosure. To keep the humidity at a high level you'd just fill this gravel reservoir up as needed..Supplementing maybe with an occasional water pour directly on the substrate.

Another thing you could think about is small wide leafed plants. The respiratory system of plants helps to create a higher humidity in enclosed spaces .. A false bottom will allow them to root down to that for water. As they lose leaves the decaying process will also add to the humidity....in fact placing a handful of any plant material in an enclosure will create a humidity gradient as it decays...and surely that environment would be pretty similar to what your Liocheles experiences in nature......Ah, ok, no probably not...that way would almost certainly end up attracting all sorts of undesirables... Embarassed

But false bottom and plants would be a more natural way instead of having to disturb them everyday by misting..

Perhaps no one has answered your question because no one knows the answer...Why not just wait and see or even better....keep notes so you can post a Liocheles australasiae life cycle calendar at some time in the future.

Although to answer your question as best i can. I kept a few Liocheles australasiae years ago and can't remember them as being fast growers....So at a guess i'd say anywhere between 3 and 6 months.

not much active, going through fasting for several month, look plump, choose to hide rather than hanging around outside.
