I would say so, there is a lot of moisture/humidity getting wicked from the perlite. That could result in your cap getting too much moisture and possibly getting bacterial blotch. I've seen people have the same problem.

It's not a big problem. What you could do is just get a piece of aluminum foil, and fold it, and put it btwn the cap and perlite. You could also get one of your jar lids and do the same.

you just don't want your cap having mositure on it for long periods of time.

You mean if someone eats the perlite right, if it gets cleaned off, it should still be OK?

well, I don't think perlite is toxic, but I wouldn't suggest eating it hehe. If you clean it off, you should be fine, but you don't want the cap in contact with it for long periods of time to avoid blotch.
