    I would guess they would be good with almost any option. Even around Texas with the ones we have I've seen them in a wide range of areas.

    For substrate topsoil or coco husk/eco earth works well. Their care is similar to tarantulas with the moist substrate, water moisture gradient (dry side and moist side) don't mist (avoid stressing the scorpion), add cover like fake plants and cork bark, deep substrate, shallow water dish (not cotton balls), feeding once a week, and not heating from the bottom (heating is usually unnecessary). For the enclosure a 16 qt tub size works for an adult and deli cups work for smaller babies.

    It’s in a 10 gal pvc bio active enclosure with cork hides live Pothos and water dish, just had it delivered just about an hour ago. Soil consist of topsoil, eco earth and decaying forest floor and a small bit of sand and peat moss. Added some sphagnum moss to help retain humidity. And feed the dwarf whites and springtails.
