I've been lurking for several months and read posts daily, so I'm going to try not to ask any stupid questions. I have gotten to the point that 4 (out of 6 - 2 others were fostered out) of my very first jars are covered nicely with mycellium (on the outside, at least), and have been for 5 days. I have a large rubbermaid-type container that I cleaned, modified, and loaded with wet perlite last night. I thought I remembered something about letting it sit for a while before the birthday party. This morning I looked inside, and I didn't see any nice droplets of humidity. Should I see something? I live in Florida and when I stick my hand inside, it feels like a sweaty day, I think. I've seen several posts saying that if I have perlite, I shouldn't have to worry about a hygrometer (I bet I got THAT word wrong - I mean the thing that reads the humidity.
My questions are :
1) I have about 1.5 inches perlite on the bottom, the container is appx 3' by 2', and then about 2' deep. Do I need more perlite?
2) Have I waited long enough to have a birthday?
3) Do I need to SEE humidity, or am I okay to ASSUME it is there?
Thanks for any help

1) That's enuf
2) Yes, no need to wait
3) If you got wet perlite, it's plenty humid
