Hi,

How can you keep a good humidity level (i.e. for Heteropoda Lunula) if you need leave your flat for 48 hours ?
I mean, what is the best solution ? Using an automatic humidifier that automatically spray water once a day ? Or spray a lot of water before leaving so the humidity level doesn't fall too fast ?
Thank you in advance and sorry for my bad english, I'm doing my best !

Spraying or misting is only a short fix it evaporates within minutes. Try making the substrate damp it will slowly release humidity into the enclosure.

Yes but is making the substrate damp enough for 48 hours ?
That would depend on ambient temps and humidity in the area you keep the enclosure as well as the type/depth of substrate along with amount of ventilation.
I think you would be good for 2 days though if you made 1/2 the sub damp. If your not sure make 1/2 the sub damp and see if it keeps up for 2 days before you leave.
