Why is my Amaryllis red tearing on the leaves

I am new to this plant and have been reading up on how this plant grows. I know it has red blotch and I have things that will help till I get some seeds but I can't find anything on how to stop with the tears on the leaves. There are four total and two look dried up while the others look somewhat well, if you could tell me what I'm doing wrong that would be a lot of help thanks.

Spider growth

I have a Vietnam Blue Chlorobracus disculus. Its just over a year old but yet its body size is only 1 inch. He is taking 2 medium crickets at a time, but if I offer him a cricket he runs away. I think I'm doing things wrong because if I haven't seem him for a while, I'm not sure if he's moulting or not and end up wrecking his webs looking for him. How do I keep him in high humidity. PLEASE HELP ME
