I incubate mine at 85-86 o F ... as far as I'm aware it shouldn't go below 82 o F or above 89 o F.

I'm incubating one lot in the Herp Nursery II, have you got a independent digi thermometer in there as well as the one built in on the front? I find that the temps on my independent thermometer read different to the one on the incubator (which I was pre-warned about, hence the independent one)

High. I don't spray mine tho. I check the substrate once a week and damp it a little if I need to and I have a tray of water in the bottom of the viv. I have a Hydrometer in there and most of the time it reads well above 90%
