my recently acquired 3 inch N. chromatus is starting to molt. This is my first experience with a molt. I misted the enclosure to give it some humidity. Keep you all updated

Don't disturb it, no more misting is needed. Just leave it be until it is done (And for a few days/one week after)

I say no more misting is needed, because that is what i was told. "internal moisture is more important than external" so just let it be, and make sure to give it lots of time to harden up before you attempt to feed it.

With mine i give them a week or so and you can see the colouration changing a little, and the fangs darkening that is how i gauge when it is ok to feed again.
