I don't understand perlite measures

What is the ratio between perlite and water to use ? I don't understand how you can put 2 inch of perlite and then measure the 1/2 inch of water mixing with the perlite..because the perlite floats..? thanx

Just use enought water to make the perilite moist.

pour some water into the perlite and mix it all up...keep doing this til its nice and moist.

mist the sides of the fruiting chamber.


then put a hygrometer in to test your humidity level...

within a few hours you will see what the rh level really is.
