Hey everyone:)
I just got my first chromatopelma Cyaneopubescens(2,5cm) but cant seem to find any information about how they drink.
Is it like with my caribena versicolor, that I spray their webbing 2 times a week or how do I do it?
A small water dish in the size of a bottlecap is already added.
And what is the perfect humidity for that spider?

Thanks everyone:)

A water bowl will do fine, you can always overflow it a bit occasionally which will help the humidity too.

They'll drink out of a waterdish just like any other spider, but GBBs are pretty heavy webbers so it may get webbed over at some point. You can also put some water droplets onto the webbing as well.

Humidity typically doesn't matter that much, just make sure you're maintaining proper ventilation and room temperature should be fine unless you live in a particularly cold environment.
