    Nel is 54 g and 4 months old now but she looks distinctly female to me. Is there a chance that she is still to small / young to know for sure?

    So...at what age do I need to start providing a dig box or watch for eggs? I know that they don't all produce eggs without being bred, but I'd like to be prepared lol

    It's not so common for a leopard gecko without access to a male to produce eggs (I'd say in my gecko population it's less than 10%). If you switch over to using a Gladware container with a hole cut in the top and some coco fiber as a humid hide, you'll have a nice humid hide and in the event that she does lay eggs, there will be a good place for her to do it. I think usually the youngest age for egg laying is about 7 months and it's likely that you won't have to worry about this until next late winter.
