I have a mistking I'm just wondering how long I should mist my 1 month old veiled for. Like the number of minutes per mist. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I have never used a Mistking on babies but you are not going to want to mist for a minute or you'll drown him. I lightly hand mist babies three time a day. I like to use the box wood plastic plant in the bottom of my baby bins and the water puddles up on the leaves so the babies can drink.

Try doing 20-30 second mists 3-4 times a day for your baby veilds if you're not going to be home. You can do seconds on the mistking timer I think, i've never done it but I'm pretty sure you can.

I'd also recommend cup feeding crickets if you wont be back before his/her lights go off.

You will have to experiment a little to ensure that your humidity levels are good and there is no puddling, but I would suggest more sessions and short duration. Also, you can offer some fresh greens daily if you want to supplement hydration. (Not all veileds will eat them, but I know mine loved a treat when offered as a baby!)
