Hi,

grandis eggs hatch anywhere and alwys if its not too moist or too hot.
I always incubate my grandis eggs at constantly 28C which gives 2/3 females and 1/males.
But you can choose any temp between 24 and 30C. Temp drops at night can go down to below 20C 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 24C, 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 dont 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

Ingo
