I have always read about individuals using vermiculite in the substrate. When I was younger I remember looking for some but could never find any. I'll just order some if I cant find any locally because I have had small issues with the coco fiber drying and layering in my vivariums, yet not in the paludarium haha. Would you happen to know a good source for an approximate amount to mix into the substrate?A "trick" I can give you that always worked (and still works) for me, when it comes to O.B Theraphosidae that needs a more humid environment, is, aside for preparing a week before the enclosure, to add a bit of vermiculite (fine grain only, not the "rough" one) in the substrate. Mix that. But as I've said, just a bit.
This helps in the long run to mantain the humidity level :-s
