Keep the surface dry and warm(80F+/_) and the substrate fairly deep(5 inches +/-). Use the humidify from below method and the scorp will burrow to where it is comfortable. keep the humid level in the substrate by adding water as needed. You usually can tell where the humidity is by a darker wet soil line in the substrate.
