Perilite does not retain moisture to well . So my guess would be no , but you can try if you are desperate .

i would definately look into another type of casing, perlite evaporates water into the atmosphere, i don't think it is possible to use it in a casing.

I have never tried but my guess is perlite will probably stop growth completely, casing is best if relatively lose. Perlite wet will compact itself and turn into almost a brick and probably kill everything under it. At least that is my guess based on what the perlite at the bottom of my fruiting chamber dose.
