If you want successful hatching I recommend Hatchrite or Vermiculite(:

I just got a spray bottle and spray the cage including the soil i have for them. I also spray the leaves because they drink the dew off of leaves only, no bowls of corse.

Vermiculite holds moisture very well.

Its a really good substrate to help keep eggs moist for hatching. It’s very efficient for hatching.

Vermiculite is a non-organic crushed mica medium for potted plants. It will not promote the growth of mold. It can be found in nurseries, Home Depot, etc. I hatched my anole eggs in it. I moisten the vermiculite by pouring water into it, then scrunching it till all the excess water drips out. I fill about half a small Tupperware or liver cup with it. Push the eggs down half way into it so that the top of the eggs are visible. Close the lid (open it every few days to change the air, but try not to bump the eggs around). If the eggs start to wrinkle, add a Little water by dropping some down the side of the container, but don’t apply water directly to the eggs themselves. The eggs need humidity but not actual droplets on them. The shell actually needs to "breathe." Keep the container where it will average about 75-80 degrees F. Try to avoid extreme temperature highs or lows.
