How often would you guys think a 3 1/2 inch - 4 inch O.S mantis molt?. I have read the bigger they get, the less frequently they molt. The reason why i ask is because ive had my O.S for about 4 - 5 months now, and he still has not molted.

You may not even notice, they tend to eat their molted shell.

I'm not the expert here but generally once a month to a couple of months. It depends a lot on feeding too.

Unless the animal has lost its raptorial appendages, the molting rate for an animal this size, again depending on temperature and food intake, is probably closer to every three months.
