I use Eco Earth for my emperor scorpion. It doesn’t need to be dry in fact, i keep mine slightly damp, Helps keep the humidity up.

Emps like there enviroment humid so the substrate need to be slightly damp not dripping wet though. If you have problems with humidity you could always get some spagnum moss and place it in different places around the enclouse this will help maintain humidity.

the reason im asking was on the package it said you can dry it in the sun wasn`t sure if it mattered i always used shagnum moss but wanted to try something different my other question is does the black light bother them or affect them in anyway i have a uth on the side but i have several black lights laying in the room would like to use if possible.

i Would only use black lights for a short period of time as it stresses them out ie: 5 mins or so any longer and you may stress your scorpion out, which can lead to food refusal or death..
