i have had great luck with whites so i will share my ideas and hope they help. i tried the food in a bowl trick once and found it didnt work. i now just put calcium dusted crickets directly in the cage but not too many at a time it can be intimidating. i have found that a live plant works the best. all my cages have 3 inches of potting soil with no fertilizer included. topped off with a layer of sphagnum then a layer of nice pillow moss. this combo allows you to plant a live plant or two, i use pothos or a nice broad leaf green plant. it also allows the use of extra water in the substrate which will keep humidity up without having to spray daily. sometimes the act of spraying can be stressfull too. make sure you are using nonchlorinated water. your temps seem fine. the trick of holding a cricket in front of his mouth works great. mine snap up everything when i do that. infact most of mine now eat pinky and fuzzy mice without hesitation using that method. hope this helps. if you need more questions answered email me dirct at cjsreptiles@aol.com
