Cypress mulch like any substrate, will remain as damp as the conditions its kept in. I quess you are really looking for how dry does it get? It gets pretty dry IMO when not misted, or exposed to wet conditions, and dries out fairly quick when it does get moist if not too thick and in a well ventilated area. Even Eco Earth and other coco fiber stuff gets pretty dry if not misted. So, a lay box purposefully kept optimally moist should be more secure and inviting then the mulch that is allowed to dry out. But, I have heard of snakes laying their eggs in their water bowls and even ignoring their nice lay boxes, so there is always a chance for error regardless of our husbandry practices LOL! I hope this is answering your question. Just treat it like any commerical substrate.
