I have a 1-year-old Sulcata and he lives in an indoor enclosure. I've been told that they need a good amount of lighting, heat, and humidity. To be completely honest, I've always been confused about the humidity part. How would I regulate it and are there any items I should be buying preferably on Amazon?

Greetings.

As far as humidity (and heat) both high! If you upload a pix of your current enclosure it will be much easier for folks to provide tips n tricks. The easiest way is to move to Florida, if not, then an enclosure with a lid is the way to go.

Although personally, our hot humid days are a bit oppressive, our Sully thrives in MD summers.

I guess it depends on how much money you want to spend and time. You should get a humidity gage. Those are on Amazon. Also you need to find a way to not let the air escape your enclosure. I dont know what your enclosure looks like so its hard to make suggestions. But you need to encase the top. Hope that helps.
