I have currentely been using the dual-chambered terrarium, but have recently read a bit about the perlite method, and it seems a bit easy with less of a hassle. I bought a container big enough to hold about six to eight cakes, and cased the bottom of the container with about two or three inches of perlite, and then added water of about an inch. I just put it on my shelf to see if it would humidify (visible condensation), though it did not. I figured that maybe the lid was too loose for this container, so I then purchased a small piece of tupperware, with a tight lid. (The container measures about 5inches by 5inches, about three inches deep.) I put about two inches of perlite on the bottom, added about 3/4 inch of water, and even after 24 hours, still no humidity. What am I doing wrong?
