    Heya! I'm planning on getting my own little Leo, and I've done a lot of research into it. I've decided to go for Reptile carpet as my substrate, however I am curious. For my Leo's humid hide, would i, or even better question, should I put a different, more humid heavy substrate to help with it? Or keep it all the same throughout my cage?

    You will need something to hold humidity better... I recommend sphagnum moss for the humid hide (alittle less messy than other options). Some people also simply use moist paper towels, but they dry out quicker.
    Just fyi that reptile carpet is going to get dirty easy and be difficult to clean. You would probably find something like stone or tile to be easier.

    Yes, it is hard to clean. If calcium or multivitamins are spilled on it, they don't just wipe off, and you may need to vacuum it every now and then. Leopard Geckos are also known to get their teeth stuck in it, and so has mine when I housed it on carpet.
