Cool mist humidifier.

Usually your perlite setup will be ok. Sometimes cheap hygrometers wont go above 75%. That may be your problem. What kind r u using?

could be too much water. I suggest that you keep the same mount of water in there, but add more perlite. Remember, this technique works by having the perlite whick the water up. It is extremely porous and encorages evaporation because of its extreme surface area. If the perlite is saturated, it defeats this effect.

I agree with adding more perlite. Just put on top and watch it. It will actually draw the water up you'll see it change color slightly.
I had the same problem and someone on the shroomery suggested more perlite or if you don't have more and want to save a trip to the store. just throw it in the microvave without a cover or bake in the oven to evaporate some water, it will also sterilize it again.

Happy Shroomin'
