I keep mine with sphagnum moss in their hide boxes but only moisten it once a week or so, usually when I feed them and/or clean their cages. Even when it's dried they still prefer to curl up underneath of it though and it usually takes a day or two to dry out.
Contrary to some popular opinions, bloods and short tails probably shouldn't be kept in a constantly damp environment as this can lead to problems down the road.
All bloods are short tails, but not all short tails are bloods, it can get a bit confusing at first. A lot of people still call Borneos "Borneo blood pythons" and Sumatran short tails "black blood pythons" but the preferred use is blood python (brongersmai), Sumatran short tail (curtus) and Borneo short tail (breitensteini).
