humidity help

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

I just got a baby Blue Tongue and actually got one that needs higher humidity than I was expecting. Does anyone have any recommendations on how to keep the humidity higher besides spraying 3-4 times a day? I work evenings 1-10est. I'm trying to find the best fogger or mister without spending a fortune.

I was told from somewhere else it possibly is a kei Blue Tongue which needs 60% to 80% humidity. I can keep 40% to 45% misting in the morning and afternoon(before work) but then when I get home it's down to 20%.

Hi there, do you have moss as a substrate ? I see both moss + paper towel. For my fireskinks I always just pour water on the substrate in the a.m. this usually keeps things nice + humid. About 1/2 -3/4 cup should do the trick.

Well, in the end I had to put top soil,coco husk and moss mix. I didn't want to do that just yet until I moved it to it's permanent enclosure( I still need alittle play sand for that one) but it's been pooping and eating pretty good and paper towels with moss in the hide just wasn't cutting it. With the above mentioned I was able to get it to 50% So, I got a fogger to add a little more to the air humidity. Finally able to get it to 70%.
So much easier with a fire skink ( i have them too) because they only need a ground humidity of 50-60% and the air can be drier.
