    It stays in there til I change it. On the 2nd day it usually dries out some, so I add a spritz of water and remix.

    The gecko always has food 24/7. Every second day the old food is removed and fresh food added. If it dries out, I add a bit more water the second day to get it soft again. If you leave old food in for longer then 2 days it can start getting kinda gross and possibly mold. It doesn't really have preservatives in it so it spoils quickly.

    Geckos should have food 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Every other day, mix fresh food for th little guy. One day after mixing fresh food, add a tiny bit of water to freshen it up.
