You can run the humidifier next to the cage as long as it is only at night.I went out last night and bought the T5HO with a 5.0 bulb! It’s set up now, I also moved her branches down to about 8-9inches below the light. Her basking spot read 81 last i check and I changed it to a 60Watt for now until I can change the type of bulb. I also took out the fake plants that had detachable parts.
I’m not done yet with the cage and things, but I’m also busy with life and other personal things! I’m going to spend today working on other little things, for starters I changed the watering schedule today and I had the humidifier running (across the room) all night
So happy you got the right UVB lighting. And the fixture does not have any sort of plastic covering over the bulb, correct?
You can attach the fake plants on the outside of the cage to make her feel more secure.
