    Default taking better care if my White Lined Gecko


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I got a white lined gecko last month and have tried to care for her as best I can with the little info I've managed to find online. But I'm looking to improve some things. First off what is the recommended heat source. I'm currently using a red UV bulb but the more research I've done, the more worried I am that its too harsh and too hot. I'm also having a hard time keeping her humidity up and was wondering what people's advice is. I'm currently using eco earth as her substrate and have lots of fake plants she can hide in.

    I* just want to be a better gecko mom and was hoping more experienced people could help!

    You can use a low-wattage ceramic heat emitter (CHE), but it would need to be in a wire fixture so as not to overheat. New Zealand sphagnum moss holds humidity very well. You can use it as a substrate, or soak some & wring it out, and put it in a small container like a gravy boat or Gladware-type container for your gecko.
