I used moistened vermiculite at a ratio of 1 part vermiculite to one part water by weight. Incubate at room temperature...70-78F is good...I typically incubated at 70-75F when I was breeding. Humidity you want at 90-100%.

Keep the eggs in a deli container with the incubation medium, have maybe one or two small holes, for ventilation..if your house humidity is low, then don't put any holes. Just check on them once a week.

For egg laying I used regular untreated potting soil, mixed with children's playsand and moistened till just damp enough that it clumps nicely when squeezed but no water comes out if squeezed hard. You can use plain soil, coconut husk (bed a beast) or a mixture. Just need a container that is big enough for the gecko and about 2-4 inches deep and fill it nearly full with the egg laying medium.
