Mist more often or put plastic cover over to help retain moisture ..... When I did open pots, I misted 3-4-5 times a day - I was constantly misting the mulch but be careful and don’t mist the plant or stem just the mulch ..... And I normally am running 4-5 fans in my tent so plenty of air movement, I’m a strong believer in constant air movement so mulch drying can be an issue ..... Another tip is to bring straw into play soaking wet - add some rock dust and / or finely ground egg shells, make sure the shells are mechanically ground fine and then run thru a screen to further chop them down - egg shells and rock dust help the worms digest their food - so important to add to mulch, BEFORE you add mulch to pot, good luck!Maybe I have too much straw. It's a 1" crunchy layer. I chopped up the mulch to speed the process, but the first bits I laid down just kinda sat there and got crunchy. Wasn't sure it would breakdown before the grow is over, lol.
After my last chop, I now have a solid layer of chopped up mulch. So maybe the straw can stay moist and decay a bit while the bits dry out. Open tops, fans blowin, the tippy top layer stays pretty dry. Wondering if I should get rid of the straw, or churn it a bit.
Clover is ready for another trim already, I might have to start freezing at this rate.
