It is most likely that everything being sold as Grammostola pulchra is actually Grammostola quirogai. The species are indistinguishable other than a small difference in the pedipalp of a mature male that can be seen using a microscope. All Grammostola pulchra being sold in the US have come from the same original source unless they were produced in the United States.
