For the flat cake aka Sea of Shrooms tek, could someone hypothetically use a aluminium pan but stick a layer of moist perlite at the bottom of it then layer of verm then the cake for added moisture?

Also for the Invitro tek,..has anyone tried putting perlite under the jars or is there enough moisture for it already?

perlite doesnt hold water, it helps it go back to the air, verm is good for bottom and top layering yes, so to answer yur questions, no, and no

actually it does, because it is porous .water gets trapped into it's pores, and it actually slows evaporation . but, if there is water below, it will wick h2o vapor to the surface, it raises rh because there is less surface tension .
dry perlite below the substrate will wick water in the other direction until it gets saturated .this makes perlite a good additive for soil, because it aides both water retention and drainage .

You should be on a commercial selling perlite to farmers
