I've been finding the above to be true generally for all the Ranitomeya/Oophaga frogs, adult or froglet, I keep - where I had the initial understanding that 80% humidity or more was necessary for their survival.

Not only do a mist about 50% less than I used to in their tank, I've noticed there are tons of micro-climates within the tanks, where the frogs are more than capable of visiting when needed (bromeliads being one of these climates).

Please do keep in mind I have only ~2 years in the hobby now.
