Get it all set up to run at 28C, with an incubation medium of vermiculite and water, premixed with hot water and vermiculite at a ratio of 1:1 by volume, the squeeze out excess water. The hot water is to ensure that the vermiculite is sterile.
28-29 degrees C (= 82-84 degrees Fahrenheit) is a good incubation temperature. And Vermiculite and water is a good incubation medium. But my experience is that a mix of 1:1 by weight is better than a mix of 1:1 by volume. Squeezing out excess water from a 1:1 by volume mix takes hands like hydraulic presses, and my (normal?) adult human male hands are just not strong enough. A kitchen measuring cup is cheap and will measure the water acceptably. 1 ml of water weighs 1 gm. If you are in the USA, 1 fluid ounce of water weighs 1 ounce.Water will have to be added every 2 weeks or so when the eggs start to dimple (dehydrate). Good luck.
