Can I keep my dessert type scorpion in an airconditioned room? I only turn the ac at morning and before sleeping because it is really hot here in our country philippines

The prerequisites for keeping a certain way are the same all over the world. The way there is different, so here in Germany I have to create different conditions than you in the Philippines. You will not get a blanket answer about air conditioning, as this is not possible. If it's too cold in the terrarium, make it warmer - if it's too damp, make it drier. These are relevant facts. Where you live, the prerequisites for keeping arachoids are more likely than here. But what your air conditioning system does, only you know!

If it gets to cold you can add a heat pad (On the side with a thermostat) to warm the enclosure. What temperatures is the room throughout the day?

These temperatures are not a problem at all and believe that even with the ongoing climate machine, the humidity will remain above 60% percent, probably even higher. Correspondingly, everything is in the green area!

You can invest in a cheap terrarium, put both deli cups inside it, and put a nano heat lamp on it.

But a heatlamp requires a thermostat for temperature control and safety purposes.

I'm getting something wrong. Why do you recommend a pure heat source at the given average temperatures? The air conditioning only runs for a short time and probably only btingt the Rsum on a bearable temperature. Where is my mistake?

What are the actual temperatures inside of the terrarium itself?
