Well, it´s an arid species so a full water dish should be enough for a juvenile or an adult. How big is your specimen?

Ignore the word humidity....its all about the substrate and the moisture its holding.

You are worrying WAY too much with this tarantula. It's a tarantula... it is going to do weird tarantula things that we do not and never will understand. Also with this species, don't be worried when it completely buries itself for half a year and you only have a legit enclosure of dirt, hide (unless it's buried it too) and a water dish. As long as you have a water dish full of water, a hide, a legit amount of substrate for a terrestrial and a non shriveled abdomen...then seriously.... just sit back and relax.
