To introduce them, I always hold the female outside the male's cage and watch for the reactions. If they both behave non-aggressively to each other then the female can be put into his cage.

If the female hisses, gape, rocks back and forth, takes on a dark background color, etc then don't put them together. When the female starts to repel the male while they are together remove her from his cage because she is gravid and will attack the male.

Many males will try and mate at a young age but whether they a fertile yet we don't know. Is he producing sperm plugs? There is no harm introducing him to her.
