:: . . . that could hurt the enclosure . . . maintaining humidity - especially in Minnesota during the winter when things get extremely dry.
::That's one thing I did not consider until talking to a breeder (I'm still a Rhac rookie). We'll see I guess.
:I have a similar situation in winter, and found an easy solution. The substrate is moist peatmoss, which goes a long way to keeping humidity up. Also, they tend to gravitate to moister areas as needed, and will even use a hidebox affair if things get too dry before I get to mist again.
:Just supply an area with higher humidity where they can hang out. I find a piece of curved bark works, they love to curl up under bark during the day if it's close to shedding. I have a couple that will use a hidebox, others prefer the bark to curl under, and one digs out a hollow under the water dish and curls up in her personal cave.
:As long as they have an area of 'personal space' that's humid enough, it won't hurt them if the rest of the enclosure gets a bit drier between mistings.
You could also go to home depot & buy a piece of something to put around a part of the enclosure. They have these bendable plastic sheets that work well for ths & you can still see your cresties. Just affix it right up against the mesh on the outside.
