grandis eggs hatch anywhere and alwys if its not too moist or too hot.
I always incubate my grandis eggs at constantly 28°C which gives 2/3 females and 1/males.
But you can choose any temp between 24 and 30°C. Temp drops at night can go down to below 20°C wihtout harm.
If you incubate for the forst 4 weeks at 31°, you almost exclusively hatch out males, but hatching rate already drops. If you incubate for the first 4 weeks at 24°C, you will get almost exclusively females.
I use gravel with a grain size of approx 3-5 mm. I put like 1.5" gravel into a box, put some drps of water into it and thats it.
If ambeint relative humidity is in the range of 60%, you normally don´t have to readd water later during incubation. Otherwise a few drops once a week are sufficient (do not drop onto the eggs)
Hope that helps
