It depends on how big your fruiting chamber is. You want half as much water as perlite. ie. If you have to inches of perlite put down an inch of water. I think It's a lot easier to add the water first then the perlite because if you do it the other way it's really hard to see the water line. Try two inches of perlite and if it isn't humid enough add some more and some more water.

Think for yourself; Question Authority

I just scoop perlite from the bag with a strainer, strain until saturated and put into the fruting chamber, do that until there is around a 1 1/2 inch layer covering the bottom of your fruiting chamber, works good so far. Don't forget to add a little peroxide.
