Watering suggestions for Mesobuthus gibbosus?

    I recently got my first scorpion- a very small desert species commonly called the Mediterranean checkered scorpion with not a whole lot of info on them. The guys I got it from gave 2 different suggestions, one said to mist the enclosure once a month and the other said to put in a cap of water for a few days every month. I've seen other people use droppers to put a little bit of water in the substrate too. I'm worried about over or under watering this little guy, anybody who is more experienced in keeping tiny desert scorps have anything they suggest? A picture to give you an idea of the size:

    I would lightly water one side of the enclosure every week or so. If you still see drops the next morning it's too much water.

    Thanks!!! I thought once a month seemed pretty sparse, I'll start giving it a light mist once a week
