In the wild they have a constant moist ocean breeze blowing across those islands. We cannot possibly duplicate this in captivity (unless you have misters and fans every where..lol). So when we spray there is nothing to remove (no wind assisting it) the excess moisture except for evaporation. Too much spraying (needed to get 70%) will not have the time to dry quickly enough and could allow bacteria or mold to get a foot hold. So it is much easier (and safer) to just leave them at ambient room humidity and give them a humid hide box. Of course if you live in a very dry area or it is winter you can spray lightly in the evening. So that % of humidity is not needed.
