I have been using the search function to find answers to my previous questions (Thank for all the info!) but I can't seem to find much information about false bottom enclosures for centipedes.

I’m considering getting a Scolopendra subspinipes and was wondering if anyone has used or had success with this type setup?

If I put an inch of gravel at the bottom, 2-3 inches of peat/coco fiber, and a water dish ,will that provide enough humidity/moisture or will I still need to mist often to keep the substrate moist?

The moisture should be fine . . . I've heard people successfully going for weeks without misting false-bottoms with the humidity staying in the 90 percent range.

I've never used a false-bottom for myriapods, but I imagine it should work without a problem.

don't think it would be detrimental, but i don't think it is necessary at all
