This spider never leaves the nest and guards its eggs. There were 34 eggs in total(We can easily count here). The eggs hatched 7 days after i saw this. The nest was made on the underside of leaf of crape jasmine plant on the lowest of all branches present there(Almost 1.2m from ground). The structure of the nest can be seen in this photo. It has small gaps on all sides so that the spider can easily come out of the nest or enter it from all sides. The nest is built by weaving strides of web one beside the other from one end of the leaf to another.
Small plants and shrubs.
