i normally have a rock in my viv but they don't use it the inside of there hide is rough so they use that i guess as long as theres some thing rough to rub against thats about it

all you need to do is make sure the humidity is about 70-75% and it should have a perfect shed! i

if it is a trouble shedder then i would add a humid hide and a rock but they don't actually need them.

I use a humid hide when mine are going into shed (particularly the BP) and spray viv with water couple of times a day to boost humidity.

my vivs have water bowls big enough to soak in and some rough bark and branches, i also mist them with warm water in a spray bottle when they are in shed, doing this i have never had a problem shed.

It depends what snakes... my royals have moss but my kings dont have anything... they shed unaided... always have.
