I did a search on caring for this specie and didn't help much...so I guess if someone can give a general caring guide it would be great. You know, general things like how often to mist, water dish, do they need something to burrow into or just hide under a piece of cork, etc. thanks guys.

definitely not a desert type species, so mist more often than desert requires. mine do fine with hides only, none have seemed to burrow.

i don't have waterdishes

I keep mine with a waterdish, which I overflow slightly about once every two weeks to increase humidity. I feed them about once a week.
My substrate is about 70-30 sand/peat. I have it about 2" deep, but they prefer to dig shallow scrapes under their cork or hang around upside down on raised peices. You can use cork bark, I am going to try a broken terra-cotta pot as I am told they will love that as well.

same here. I kinda figured it out on my own by research but they do seem to really like water.
