>>I would let the basking area and the majority of the enclosure dry out and increase the basking area to 95. Definetly keep the shallow water dish or two(the more the easier to find). The hide box should be kept at around 60-70% humidity which you have, but for a hatchling? I would raise the temp to 80. The hide box can be kept at this humidity by keeping the soil in it slightly moist but not wet!

thanks for the reply. Im going to be doing something about the heat in the hide to bring up the temps. the rest of the table has been doing well and drying out.. the humidty in the basking area is now down to 20-25%. would attaching a heating pad to the inside of the hide on the roof be a good idea? I would be attaching it to wood. humidity is still staying around 65-70% in the hide.
