Hey guys, this is a much debated topic and I will tell you that when doing my research before getting my silk baby, I got a few different answers since the morph is still so new and the oldest silks are just now 5 or 6.
I soak my baby every single day for 20 minutes. I have noticed that he gets dehydrated much more quickly than normal scale dragons.
I use a reptisun 5.0. Some breeders will tell you that a 10.0 is fine, and for some silkies, it is. But because their skin is less protected, they are much less likely to develop burns or a form of skin cancer down the road with the 5.0 than the 10.0-- Silks also have a tendency to have more sensitive eyes and the lower light will help with this also.
I do use lotion, I personally use unscented, normal curel. You can use any unscented, mild lotion that does not have anything "extra" in it (i.e. vitamin E, cocoa butter etc.). I have also been told that aloe GEL works well also (it must be the gel). I lotion him regularly, paying special attention to toes and tail. DO NOT "help" him shed, it is nearly impossible to distinguish ready to come off skin from live skin unlike on a normal scale (not that you should "help" on a normal scale either, but it is much more risky with silks).
I keep my basking spot around 100-103 F for him to avoid burns, although I have provided different areas where he may bask to get more or less exposure to the light as he feels necessary. I have yet to have a problem with his digestion so I feel confident in saying that this is acceptable.
Do not put anything in the enclosure with rough edges, like the bark half log hides as their skin is much more sensitive and when rubbing themselves to shed, they may hurt themselves.
As far as breeders go, do your research, silks can be weak, less enthusiastic eaters. Also, as mentioned above, they have a tendency to have problems with vision. I bought mine from Diamond Den and I recommend them 110%, they were fantastic to work with, very nice, obviously caring, and helpful.
I hope this helps! And, just for fun, here is a pic of my little guy:
