Thanks to all of you who helped me when I first got her. I kept saying I'd post pics, so I finally am.

I'm not sure how much spiders like "repti bark" or whatever bark substrate that is, but my reccomendation would be about 3 inches of 60-70% potting soil, 30-40% peat moss. Make sure you pack it down a little bit and moisten it slightly. ALso dont buy anything with fertilizers, plant food, etc in the soil. This also helps keep in humidity better. You can also use a shallower, wider, water dish to keep humidity up if you are not already misting or covering part of the top of the cage or something.

My redknee sits by the water dish all the time unless the humidity is up around 40-50%.

P.S.: Sorry for the crappy picture quality, i had to reduce it to 10% of its original quality to get the file small enough to post.
