forget the exo terra thing, condensation is good, watch ur eggs, if they dimple, put a damp tissue over them till they plump out out, and remove again, ur temp is good, sounds like ur humidity is spot on too, let ur eggs be ur guide though, after all its whats in them thats most important :) you'll have little snakes in no time.

Wait and see after a couple of days, I have not yet had a hygrometer that is actualy acurate, if they continue to dip get a syring and put some more warm water aroung the eggs in the vermiculite, the moss is that damp or dry?

If it was getting a little dry it would have been absorbing the humidity of the tub, make sure you take the moss out to spray it or you could ruin the eggs.
oh i mean i did befor i put it in whe n i was spraying it :)
