:Sounds a bit too moist in my opinion.
:If the relative humidity constantly exceeds 60-70%, hatchoing rate in fday gecko eggs can drop significantly.
:Also I do not recommend vermiculite for day gecko eggs-especialy if this is fine grained stuff.
:Geckos immediately shed after hatching. Vermiculite grains stick to the moist skin and are eaten together with the skin. This can result in blocked guts...babies never eat and die within a few weeks.

:Hope that helps
