How fast will my colony grow? solenopsis richteri

Had anybody else kept solenopsis richteri?

From what I read they are pretty isolated here in the States. The documentation I've found on them indicated that they would reach a max colony size of 400,000. If like to know how fast they will get there from anybodies experience.

M.J.
Solenopsis Richteri x 2
Lasius Neoniger x 2
Camponotus spp. x1
Wish List:

Monomorium pharaonis

I'm not sure about soleonopsis richteri, but I'm general they grow VERY fast.
Check out my blog: bayareaants.blogspot.com
Keeper of:
Camponotus Modoc(6 workers)
Pheidole Spp (2 queens, about 10 workers)
Possibly parasitic Formica (further ID required)
Novomessor Cockerelli (10+ workers)
