I'm not real sure on that one...I'm still on my first batch of hpw...I think 2 weeks now? With 3 suggies and I still have a good amount left. I'm guessing with 1 suggie you won't run out for a long time.

Was this just for one suggie im4myself2? If so, than you may be over feeding.

I do believe there are 64-65 TABLESPOONS per batch. so that should give you so that should give you about 128 nights for a single glider since each glider only gets 1-1/2 TEAspoons of HPW a night (along with veggies and fruits)

HPW lasts a good while for my picky eaters. They rarely clean their dish. It is so easy to make, I don't mind them wasting a bit.

I feed HPW and was wondering about how long it would last as well. I've been feeding for the past 2.5 weeks now, and there is still quite a bit left.

Yes it is for just one. Yes I am most likely over feeding. she seldom eats it all. I was advised on weighting her and she is staying right around 80 grams(?). I also struggle with getting her to eat any veggies. She will eat fruit smootie not much relish. She does love flowers(only from glider safe list) and clover. We grow our own clover and plants from seed so we know they are safe from all sprays. She will also eat mealies if I hide them in things in her cage for her to find. I will start cutting back on the HPW I feed her. I want a health baby.

I haven't counted out the days, but for my 5 gliders 1 batch lasts a long time!
3 out of my 5 have gotten chunkier though.

One of mine gained weight and got a bit chunky once I switched to the HPW. However, I really believe he is just a large glider. To me it seems like every single one of my glider has reached their personal optimum weight and stayed there. The only one I was worried about being chunky has actually slimmed down. Linus - he is large, but ... he is large!

I wish there was such a food for humans. Blend it up every few weeks, eat measured portions, plus all the fruit and veggies you want, and maintain optimum weight. I don't need variety!! I've always wanted something like dog kibble - the complete human food ... :sigh:

I don't think mine are really fat, they are definitely bigger. 2 of the three are now caring for a newly oop joey.

I think many of the vendors will allow you to pay by check or money order, all you have to do is contact them. I know I have several people that order from me and send the money to me snail mail instead of paypal. thumb
