So I read that the ghost mantis ooths require 50-70% humidity, so I decided to lightly spritz the hatching cup twice a day... this brought the humidity between 50-90%. But this Ooth hasn’t hatched, nor have the other 3 that were laid after this one on 3/10. I think I oversprayed, because after stopping the humidity kept at 50-54% for the last 3 days... Do you think the ooths are still good?

I attached a photo of my hatchery.

If they are around 2 months old, probably not. It should only take 5/6 weeks to hatch and just mist 3 times a week if you can, as to what you were doing is to much.
