I would try making the perlite a little deeper, its the amount that the water wicks through, not the amount of water, i only use 2 little trays of perlite in my chamber and it fogs up the walls. also make sure your seal is good.

Make sure the lid is tight on your terrarium. If not, you can use some kind of plastic bag like a garbage bag to cover it. This was my aquarium:

are you using an air pump for air exchange? That could cause the RH to go down if you did not have the tube in water or under the perlite
