You could try running airstones under the perlite, the bubbling action seems to give the humidity a little nudge, the air exchange won't hurt either.

Also, remember that many hygrometers are crap.

I never got mine over 85rh and they fruited fine. They are on there 2cd flush right now and doing very good.

I also have a cheap Humidity guage I got from petco. I would imagine my RH might be higher but the guage is just a piece of shit.

Fruiting occured exactly 7 days after birth. This happened for the first half birthed and the 2cd when they were done.

My temps in my apartment are probably closer to 80 also.

Hope that helps.

Make sure your humidity gauge works properly.
Try this hygrometer test: http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/7993
