Poke some small holes in a deli cup with slightly moist substrate preferably coco earth. Squeeze it so that it is damp but doesnt drip. Pack it in nice and tight so that they can burrow.

This should be fine for all the Ts you mentioned.

As substrate dries over a few weeks then add a few droplets of water to a spot on the wall of deli cup. Don't over do the water as slings get most hydration from feeders.

I know Malaysia can be very humid outdoors. I would keep them in a less humid area of your home. That way you can regulate the humidity by yourself.

@KezyGLA pretty much covered it all, but just to reiterate like I do every time you ask about humidity, stuffy cages will kill any spider. Avoid that at all costs, it can't be stressed enough.
