OK Well to start With i cant seem to get much of any humidity In my Mini FC's both are made out of An Apple Juice Bottle Like THIS (except they dont have the handle and i cut of the top, and replaced to with a zip lock bag for easy opening and closing)

Anyways i dont have a hygrometer, but i have read on here that you know you have adequate humidity when there is visible condensation on the walls,

I have tryed Two Ways So far The Shotgun FC and i never got any condensation after a day of sitting,i had at least 3 Inches Of Hydrated Perlite if not a little more, tryed it with very few holes and then again with alot more holes... still no luck

Then I am trying With Still No condensation, A mini PMP i have hydrom Filled Up about 4 Inches, with about 3.5 inches of water, with a bubble stone, I Have had the Pump running 24/7 for the last 48 hours and have only one small hole in the top,

Im Kinda At a loss, I need to go and purchase an analog hygrometer cause maybe i do have sufficient RH but wouldnt there Be Condensation if there was?

I dont feel like condensation is a great gauge to use to determine your humidity.  There are debates about this semi-regularly.  just type condensation in the search function and start reading.
IMO a lot of condensation is a pretty good indication of high humidity inside your chamber, but this is not always the case, especially if there are temperature fluctuations going on around your chamber.
A lack of condensation is also not a good indication of low humidity, especially in a shotgun FC.
-Just my two cents worth.

NO !

Condensation only means that there is a temperature difference between one area and another causing water to condense "on the border" between them.

Your setup is probably fine for humidity if you've been able to grow shrooms
