What you want is a hot spot under the lamp of around 90 degrees, and a daytime ambient cage temperature of about 84-86 degrees, dropping the cage temp at night 5-10 degrees. Feeding in the evening after the temps drop will get the best feeding response. Your amazon will spend most of its time on the ground in a hide. Its a good idea to have hides on both the warm and cool ends of the cage. The humidity you have going is fine. The only time you really want it wet is when the snake is in shed. Between sheds a little misting is O.K., but not necessary.
