New Owner Anxiety

Hi! I just got a new baby corn, who is precious, but I find myself stressed that I am going to do something wrong, and I would appreciate some reassurance or advice from more experienced keepers. I've included a list of my enclosure's numbers here, as well as a couple of concerns that I have.
  • Hot Side: 82-83 F
  • Cold Side: 77-79 F
  • Basking: 90-92 F
  • Humidity: 45-50%
  • Decor: 2 hides, a few thoroughly cleaned PVC pipes with the edges sanded down, 2 branches, and a water bowl

My main concern now is that they don't really seem to be taking to the water bowl; they were drinking some droplets of water after I lightly sprayed the enclosure to raise humidity a bit yesterday, but I don't want them to end up dehydrated. I'd also appreciate some tips on feeding.

Thank you!
