::For standingi, with all husbandry needs met, it can be between four to six weeks for eggs to be produced.

::There are lots of medium used for incubation. Vermiculite is one. Large grade gets an extra ++ because it is less likely to be ingested by smaller geckos. Smaller vermiculite is fine as ingestion rarely happens (never in my collection). I switched from vermiculite because I did not like the way it clings to hatchlings. I now use expanded clay pellets. Perlite is also a medium of choice among keepers. What ever the medium, its goal is to maintain humidity without encouraging mold and fungus.

::The best prevention to egg binding is to provide a good supply of dietary calcium and D3, and for most keepers, have a UV light that is not out-date (they last about a year). For breeding females, keep a lid of calcium and D3 in the enclosure for her to get to when she needs it.

:Thank you for the info. I already had a dish of clacium with Vit D for her, she doesn't appear to be taking any, but it's there for her if she needs it. I'm going to try either the clay pellets or the perlite, I don't want to chance the vermiculite. Thanks again...

Also remember with Standingi that they will also guard and protect the eggs and young offspring as well. So If you do not find the eggs it is not a problem. We sometimes just let them take care of the eggs and take out the babies after a couple of weeks. You are looking at about 30 days for the deposition of eggs and about 60-75 days for incubation depending on temps. Hope this helps
