Anyone have any tips on lowering the humidity in a PMP so its suitable for casings? I tried not soaking the perlite as much but I think I still have 99% humidity..

Add more water. If more of the perlite is submersed then it has less surface area from which to evaporate. Try 4/5 submersed. Like if you've got 3" of perlite, fill it with 2 1/2" of water or something like that. I know this because when I started out I always added too much water in my PMP and couldn't figure out why I couldn't get the RH up above 85%. Finally I just took some of the water out and within about 30 hours the humidity rose up into the high 90's. Hope this works for ya.
