 Can I breed a 1 y/o male to a 2 y/o Female Ball?

Hey guys, Iím back again to ask for your much appreciated advice! Heres my coincidinc..

I want to purchase 2-3 Rare Ball baby Morphs (Spider, Albinos, Pastels, etc) but I dont want to wait a total of 2 years for a female to reach sexual maturity. So I have come up with a game plan;

If I bought a 1 Y/O female and baby spider, after 1 year could I breed a 2 Y/O female normal ball to a 1 Y/O Male Spider ball? Is that possible?

Another question: I have seen several adult female normal balls being sold, the heavier ones being more expensive. Is this because a heaver 2000-3000gram can produce a bigger clutch than a 1200-1800gram female?

Once again guys, thanks!

If you really want to breed ASAP the best way would to get a over 1000 gram female and a hatchling spider. You would be able to breed in 1 to 2 years depending on the male. Some males will develop sperm plugs as early as 6 to 8 months old but your female has to be 1500 plus grams to be able to pass the eggs.
