How long to wait for a sack?

Bred my G Porteri’s I think about 3 months ago.
She’s looking plump she has been eating quite a lot as well though.
I was just wondering is there certain Tell tail signs that she could be laying soon?
How long should you wait until you attempt breeding again?
Kept in silent room that’s dark 99% of the time and 80-82 degrees

10-12 months isnt unheard of for some species to drop. My Tliltocatl albopilosum Nicaraguan just dropped a sack 10.5 months after pairing her. The sperm is still good until they activate it. So theres no real need to pair her again. I cool my ladies down to drop...low to mid 70s. I also will water her enclosure really good to get her in the mood to start silking. I raise the temps to 82 once they drop.

I had her at low - mid 70s for quite some time before breeding.
I am missing the humidity big time though her enclosure has been bone dry, I’ll start misting to increase her humidity
