Hey ive been working on my enclosure for a while now and this is how its going, I have the UVB, Basking, and LED lights working, already installed the misting and fogger system, did my best with the basking branch and the plants that im using are Golden Pothos, all of it is hanging and not touching the floor, for the draining im using dog pee pads that i will be changing once everyday, I also put some branches on the back of the leaves so he feels safe and hidden, average getting 80% to 90% humidity and temp is 75-70 day time and 60/65 night time, misting system is set up for 45 seconds at 12AM and for 1 minute at 6AM (still waiting for the baby to arrive so I can check how he feels about a misting session in between those two, Ill be adding a dripper when he gets here, hes gonna arrive on wednesday 18 so Im just trying figure out what Im missing before he gets here

It looks great! What uvb are you using? And are you planning on having 80-90% of humidity just during the night or throughout the whole day?

Lol sorry half sleeping ( funny that's it the thread title ) so anyway for daytime humidity you will want 50to 60 %70 max for a panther. When joining did you fill out a husbandry form as this is the best way to get the most help ?

And the humidity shouldnt be a problem because I get it up to 80 because I was trying to keep it high, naturally it will get 65 to 70

Hi so I noticed you have an analogue temp/humidity gauge. Wired digital probes are more accurate you will want at least 2 temp probes 1 at the basking area where the back of your baby will be and 1 closer to the bottom to check your thermal gradient. And a humidity probe somewhere in the middle ( making sure it is somewhere that does not get sprayed as this will give you false results) I use 3 in my enclosure plus a govee mini wireless which is good too see what's going on at night with temps and humidity

Can you link me the ones you use on amazon or something so I can check them out? I have a wireless digital one and one with gauge and they do have different numbers I was gonna rely on the digital one but Ill check yours out

Hey Sailouchai, loving the set up man.
I've currently got my lighting sat directly on top of the cage and i'd like to move it 2-3 inches higher, similar to what you've done.
Whats the name of the metal grid you've got between the cage and your lighting?
