    I have started measuring her each week and this is the second measuring, she was 12 cm and 3 mm and this time she was 12 cm and 8 mm!!! a 5 mm difference from last time, I now understand why supplementing is so important.

    Similar to youngsters of all species Citrine is in the fastest growth period of her entire life. That's why proper supplementing is vital.

    Thanks a lot. I thought I read that they would not eat much before her shed, but she stuffes herself and then just slides on out of her shed, but I have nothing against her for doing that. she also makes me feel that
    I am not feeding her enough because she gobbles up anything but I am keeping her tail smaller then her head, ma I feeding her enough? and I do gutload the mealworms for 10 min on organic vegetables.

    Remember she lives to eat right now.

    Concentrate on these vegetables and fruits for gutloading your mealworms. I recommend gutloading mealworms for several hours before feeding them to Citrine.

    "If you opt for making your own gutload at home, here is a list of great ingredients to use:
    Best: mustard greens, turnip greens, dandelion flowers & leaves, collard greens, escarole lettuce, papaya, watercress, and alfalfa.
    Good: sweet potato, carrots, oranges, mango, butternut squash, kale, apples, beet greens, blackberries, bok choy, and green beans.
    Dry food: bee pollen, organic non-salted sunflower seeds, spirulina, dried seaweed, flax seed, and organic non-salted almonds.
    Avoid as much as possible: potatoes, cabbage, iceberg lettuce, romaine lettuce, spinach, broccoli, tomatoes, corn, grains, beans, oats, bread, cereal, meat, eggs, dog food, cat food, fish food, canned or dead insects, vertebrates."

    Thanks so much. I have mostly been gutloading on carrots and I thought about lettuce but now I know that lettuce is bad, I have also been feeding her at 6:00 so I will remember to start gutloading at around 3:00.
