Oops...Yes, I meant .8 water to 1.0 vermiculite by weight. This is a guideline, for years and thousands of clutches of reptile eggs have been hatched using 1:1. I think a bit dryer is better, and of course plenty of keepers just guess at the moisture by "feel" and they have good success. Of course how dry the vermiculite to start with may slightly infuence the total moisture content and the weight. I usually dry the vermiculite before adding the water, baking it in the oven or intense desert sun. Acutally, though we tend to obsess on it, the exact amount probably is not real important, it allows for variation. good luck, Vic
