I have left it in overnight before and he just never touches it for some reason. I am scared of leaving it in there for longer because of injury or stress to my spider. I am gonna try feeding again in a few days though I believe its getting ready to molt soon but still unsure.

when i first got my baby G. rosea it wasnt eating

about 10 days after i got it , it molted.

my female G. rosea molted the day after i brought her home

i thought she was dead when i saw her on her back

i didnt know that molted on there back

your spider is probably going to molt soon i bet thats why its not eating.

Wow thats crazy! Good to know your guys made it ok through the molt. I hope that is the case he is getting pretty sluggish and his abdomen is discolored so I believe he might soon enough but I dont know. Fingers crossed haha

Check it out he finally molted! Discovered it this afternoon when I was checking up on my other creatures. Very happy that I dont have to worry about that anymore haha.

People tell me 5 or 7 but I suppose ill stick with 7 just to be safe. But thanks so much it was really cool when I discovered it haha. Just bumped his enclosure pretty badly though just now and I really hope I didnt hurt him. He looks totally fine but I dont know.
