I'm not sure how effective spraying a BD directly is, I believe moisture isn't effectively soaked in through they're skin so to speak. People believe they intake moisture through they're vents hence the use of baths. i believe spraying creates a more natural occurrence such as morning dew. Regardless, be sure to spray outside of the viv in order to keep humidity down. Spraying within a viv can cause high humidity and respiratory infections. You will need to provide vitamin powder, the ratio depends on the age of the dragon in question. In your case 5 days calcium, 2 vits however I wouldn't provide daily as such. I give a rough 5/2 calcium vit mix with each live feed, this way they receive everything they need over a steady period as apposed to separate times of the week.
