No perlite for casings

Do you guys recommend this? I've read here and there that if you have a casing perlite is not necessary in keeping up humidity.

No, it is not necessary. I assume you mean perlite in the bottom of a tub with water, for passive humidification. You can have a casing with some sort of lid on it and it will produce its own humidity. In fact, I induce pinning this way...

A casing in a tub, perlite and water in the bottom. Not necessary as long as the casing can provide enough humidity for the size of the tub as to initiate pinning. After that the humidity level can be much lower.
