Best way to use perilte for humidification is to :

Take a strainer, fill it up with the perlite. Turn on your faucet or hose and soak it like that. Then dump into your rubbermaid.

I find with adding your perlite to the terrarium, and then adding water, the perlite on top does not get wet, while the bottom layer is completely wet, and does not serve for humidification.

I use the same method for saturating vermiculite... works great.
