Ambient room humidity is fine in addition to lightly spraying them in the evening and a humid hidebox. Thatís all you should need. If they are having problems shedding you can mist a little more. Too much misting leads to a soggy environment and potential bacterial problems. Also 50-60% humidity should not affect his ability to climb glass. Are you sure he does not have shed stuck on his toes? Put him on the side and see if he can hang on.

As far as the food goes you canít. Crickets are a much better food source then all fruit diets, something I have been saying and preaching for a long time. Animals fed a high protein diet grow faster and are healthier. However there are stubborn geckos out there, esp if they were started on an all fruit diet. The only thing you can do is mix meat and fruit baby food (1:2 ratio). The gecko will remain to grow at a slower pace though until he begins to accept crix. Good Luck!
