I'm not sure how that place is ventilated.

having a warm hide and a cool hide is probably a better approach.
I used to have 2 hides. She never used cool hide.

My Ball python stays in the hide a lot but at sometimes at night I see him roaming from one to the other and even on top of them.
the is no problem at night.
she explore her enclosure fine.

I will also offer one general bit of personal advice in regards to internet forums/groups. If you aren't open to ideas, suggestions, and criticisms, don't post asking for feedback. It wont go well. If you are 100% happy with your enclosure then just use it. If you are 100% happy and confident, the only purpose of posting a thread like this is to brag.
My enclosure is made from trash so how it can be a brag ?
I read advises and decide which I am going do.

It's winter so it's 23-24C

Re: Enclosure from what lay in a garage

by the way.
there is a site where a man write about breeding carpets.
here a part of an article.
Quote:
I start the cooling process on about the 1st of June and it continues until about the 15th of July. This means that on the 1st of June I switch the heat in both the male and females cages off completely at night, I do not drop the temperature slowly for a while. During this process, the temperature sometimes drops to about 10 degrees during the night. Don't worry about the snake getting sick if it is too cold, as long as it has heat during the day it will be fine, so don't forget to turn the heaters back on each morning so that the cage reaches about 32 degrees on the hot spot. As with breeding all pythons, a good thermal gradient is very important.

But that is completely unrelated to what you need to cover first before you start to worry anything about how to successfully breed carpets. First get your basics right before exploring into everything else.

Ps. it's not about convection if the air has no place to go but circle around in the enclosure.

the point is carpets can handle +10 C at night as long as they warming enough at day.

my enclosure has vent channel at front bottom and has vent channel at rear upper . So сold air get warm one and go from heat pad to upper vent channel. New air go through front vent channel. Isn't it enough for air 40% humidity ?

Colubrids like corns, kings etc are fine with an isolated hot spot to lay on and closer too room temperature elsewhere but carpets need a hot area of the cage and higher ambient temperatures throughout the rest of the cage.

During cycling for breeding, yes. Otherwise, this kind of night drop should not occur and can be detrimental.
