    Put about one inch of perlite on the bottom of the bowl, to act as drainage, and water with distilled, bottled, or purified water ONLY! With tap water you have a 95% chance of killing your plants! Treat it as a mini bog, with my mini bogs I water untill the water level is about 2 inches under the soil level, then water again once there is no more water in the perlite 'tray'. Good luck!
    P.S.- your plants will do fine as long as you give them good airation and don't water too much.
