Best Hydration Medium for Hybrid Nest 2.0

I just got the new tetramorium hybrid nest 2.0, and I was wondering what the recommended hydration medium was for the nest. I used cotton balls on my old hybrid nest, but the hydration system has changed a bit and I’m wondering if cotton balls are still a good option.

Should be fine. You could also use paper towels folded up until they are the proper thickness.
Proverbs 6:6-8

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.

Another option is to fill the basin with Perlite. Any of these suggestions should work fine.

Sponges should work fine too.
