Even though our climates are different, watering is the key...for me it's once a week in summer and about every 3 weeks in winter.
As you can see mine live in the bathroom with the African Violets....they also share the African Violet fertilizer every time that I water.
The pot isn't the problem because they like their roots to hang over the edge.......having the Spaghnum moss keeps it moist but if there is a lot of it in the potting mix, that also makes it hard to judge how damp it is.
Water it thoroughly then tip it up and drain it so it isn't sitting in water.
Good luck with it, they are worth the effort....
Anthony, my spider has such a great web, her meals are always waiting and I am sure that I saw a tiny silver dish on the top of the shell..that must be who the extra TV guide is for......lol
