They were too wet and BAS thought it was the issue. It does seem it may have been part of it. My mix is a little different and hotter than theirs. I want to be on the same page, so….you’re going to hate this but it won’t be wasted, I promise, and it could of course change. I’ve just learned so much there that I’d rather be in the same mix.It’s gonna start to be a pain to water all these once plants get bigger. Why did you take mulch covers off earth boxes? Decided to use straw instead?
it’s rice hull. Very light, to slow drying etc. because they said to let it dry a bit. The covers, we’re just collecting moisture and putting it back in. I don’t know how or why it would be different for us. Other than the mix. But that’s just a guess.
As far as a pain to water…..trust me, I already know. Haha. You know that story. I have a semi fix for now, that will be better come spring. Right now I have 48gals of water in the house. Ok, ok, it’s 46 now. Coffee too. lol
