So my incubator does a pretty good job of keeping the correct temperature but the humidity always seems to be in the low to mid 90s
I scrape the condensation off the inside of the door but I didn’t want the vermiculite to dry out completely. Where the eggs are bedded.

question is should I put some moisture packs in there to draw some of the moisture out or possibly leave the door cracked a little bit so the humidity can escape or do you think it would be fine?
Any help is appreciated

Species makes a big difference - some require more, some less.

Yes. Sorry I forgot to specify
these would be Leo eggs….
Your humidity is perfect for Leo eggs. No need to change anything.

Have you seen this?

Soak the babies daily and keep them warm and humid in a closed chamber. Use a brooder box set up for at least 7-10 days before they go into an enclosure. Be sure the umbilical scar is all closed up before putting them on any kind of substrate.
