Depends on how much peace and quiet you give her. Leave her totally alone for several days, with a nice place to hide in and sleep, and lots of darkness. Then start talking to her and offering treats. Days later get her in a big tube and let her walk out on your hand when she wants to.

Never (for now) grab from above; never surprise her - I always knock on the wall of their habitat so they know I am there.

Mine got pretty tame in ten days- 2 weeks.
